VWS-2100 Embedment Strain Gauge

VWS-2100 Embedment Strain Gauge

Particularly suitable for the long-term monitoring of concrete structures.
Consists of two end flanges with a tensioned steel wire between them. As concrete undergoes strain, the end blocks will move and the tension in the wire changes. A vibrating wire readout generates voltage pulses in the magnet/coil at the centre of the gauge and measures the resonant frequency of vibration.

Applications:

-Driven and bored piles
-Tunnels and deep excavations
-Concrete Dams
-Mass concrete pours
-Building foundations
-Retaining Walls

Features:

-Reliable long-term performance and accuracy
-Rugged, suitable for demanding environments
-Not affected by long cable lengths
-Suitable for direct embedment in concrete
-Output resistant to electrical noise
-Thermally aged to minimise long term drift & calibration changes
