Strain gauge amplifiers play a crucial role in converting low-strength signals from strain gauge circuits into more usable forms. In this informative blog, we will delve into the working principles of strain gauge amplifiers, their importance, and how they enhance the functionality of strain gauge systems.

Enhancing Safety in Tailings Dam Management

IMG 20240122 WA0021

The Importance of Continuous Monitoring In the wake of a recent catastrophic failure of a Tailings Storage Facility (TSF) in Turkey, the global mining industry has been shaken by the urgent need for improved safety measures. The incident serves as a stark reminder of the potential consequences of inadequate monitoring systems for TSFs. To address […]

Why use a strain gauge rosette?


With the use of a strain gauge rosette we are able to calculate principal strains and stresses accurately in both magnitude and direction ensuring the integrity of your stress analysis results.

Fast, Accurate Weighing

CatmanAP is a software suite used with HBM’s range of data acquisition hardware. It simplifies measurements by automatically configuring sensors with TEDS technology, allowing sensors to be plugged into any channel on any DAQ without concern for setup errors. Additionally, CatmanAP allows the user to define fast, default, and slow sample rates on a per-channel basis, and provides the ability to save measurement data in multiple formats, including Excel, NI DIAdem, and MATLAB. CatmanAP also includes a video module that supports built-in, USB, and ethernet cameras.

PCB Testing with Strain Gauges
