Special strain gauges for temperatures up to 350°C

HBM expands its range of strain gauges, of the KFU series, which can be used at extremely high temperatures up to 350°C.

The KFU strain gauges are shipped with a 1m long cables and are protected against high temperatures. They are available in grid lengths of 2 mm and 5 mm as well as in different versions, such as linear, T (with two measuring grids) or R (with three measuring grids) rosettes, depending on the application’s requirements. Additionally, they are available with a temperature response matching that of steel, austenitic steel, and aluminum.

**For strain measurements in autoclaves ** ‎ Typical applications of strain gauges include strain measurements in autoclaves. The gauges can be used at high temperatures for specified durations; at 350°C they can be used for 72 hours or at 300°C for 360 hours .

**Go-ahead for cooperation with Kyowa Electronic Instruments **

The series KFU strain gauges are the first products manufactured by HBM in collaboration with the Japanese manufacturer Kyowa Electronic Instruments; and HBM has added this series to its standard range of products. This cooperation of two technology leaders enabled HBM to complement its range of products with additional, fascinating sensors, such as those for very high temperatures, and offer these to clients in future.

Clarifying Machine Vision with High Quality Sensors
Automated imaging technology is everywhere we look. As cameras and their processing units get ever smaller, they are moving into ever more industries - from speed cameras and factory production lines to diagnostic medicine. For many of these applications, image quality is critical - but what does image quality really mean? Different applications will require quite distinct performance characteristics. Understanding camera specifications, differences between CCD and CMOS sensors, and features such as real-time processing or near-infrared (NIR) can help guide the camera selection process to produce better imaging results.
