RS Pro Strain Gauges

Our RS Pro strain gauges have been created and designed to measure the strain and force of an item, each foil strain gauge has a laminated surface with 30 mm integral leads. The gauge sticks to an item, as it deforms the electrical resistance changes - this process can sometimes be referred to as the "gauge factor". Our RS Pro strain gauges can be used in a multitude of applications for strain measurement, such as keypads, medical devices and automotive products.
