Bolt-On Strain Sensors
Datum Electronics bolt-on strain sensors are an ideal solution to many strain measurement requirements. They are robust, dust & water resistant, suitable for the harshest of environments, including high-stress level applications.
Bolt-on strain gauge sensors are compact in size, can provide temperature compensation (see out 3-hole bolt-on sensors) and have been designed to be easily installed without soldering or gauge adhesive.
They have been successfully used in silo weighing, tank weighing, hopper weighing bin weighing, bunker weighing, and large industrial applications worldwide.
The strain sensors are also used as an onboard weighing solution, when mounted to a vehicle’s bridge or axle, acting as weighing scales and providing reliable and accurate data to a vehicle’s system as live continuous data. Forklift trucks (transporting packages of varying weights), articulated vehicles, dump trucks, and agricultural trailers also benefit from having the ability to gain real-time weight measurements.
Bolt-On strain gauge sensors can be mass produced for customers, requiring an OEM solution for their particular application, meaning you can have a load sensor tailored to your requirements, supplied in volumes, which can be retro fitted or installed in your production line.
Silo Hawk / Silo Weighing SystemSilo Hawk is the market-leading non-intrusive real time weighing solution for silos and other weighing apparatus, using the high accuracy measurement solutions from our Bolt On sensors range.
2-Hole Bolt-On Strain Gauge SensorOur Series 460 2-Hole Bolt-On Sensor is not only an essential product for measuring micro-strain, but it can also become an integral part of a strain monitoring system for using in harsh environments.
3-Hole Bolt-On Strain Gauge SensorThe Series 460 3-Hole Bolt-on strain sensor has a unique design, eliminating the temperature effect on bending and strain of the application, and can work in almost any environment and in any weather.
