The LY Series of linear strain gauges with one measuring grid, from HBM, is a top choice for strain measurements in one direction. Users like the LY Series because of its many advantages.
- Wide selection. With many types available — LY1, LY2, LY4, LY5, LY6, LY7 and LY8 — the series offers linear strain gauges in various geometries and sizes. Each is available with temperature responses adapted for various materials, including steel, aluminum or to the customer’s specification. Strain gauges are available with nominal (rated) resistances of 120, 350, 700 and 1,000 ohms. Various connection configurations are available, including a version with a practical connection cable.
- Rugged materials: The measuring grid is constructed of constantan, a copper-nickel alloy known for its high resistance. The measuring grid’s carrier is made from polyimide, a material known for its high resistance to heat.
- Accessories. LY4 strain gauges are available with a connection cable, which can come in lengths from 0.5 to 10 metres. An RJ11 plug is available upon request. A Teflon wire on the strain gauge prevents the cable from sticking during installation, and no soldering is required at the measuring point.
