Micro-Measurements Seminar on Strain-Gage-Based Transducers — Design, Assembly, and Refinement (1 day)

This seminar is suited to technicians, engineers, or managers who are responsible for designing, manufacturing, or testing strain-gage-based transducers. It is an intensive, one-day review of the materials, components, production methods and test methods used to build these devices.

Circuit refinement techniques are discussed including compensation for temperature effects on zero and load.

Time is reserved during the afternoon for a question-and-answer session covering participant topics, which can be conducted confidentially if required.

Topics include:

  • Basic Strain Gage (Strain Gauge) Characteristics
  • Gage Creep Compensation
  • Temperature Compensation
  • Gage Installation Techniques for High-Volume Manufacturing
  • Wheatstone Bridge Circuits
  • Zero-Balance Compensation
  • Discussion of Current Gage Protection Methods
