Baumer's new DSRK strain probe for tie bar strain measurement uses the glued strain gauge principle.
The resilient stainless steel measuring head is highly-resistant to impacts and guarantees repeatability and long-term stability. Containing no elastomers, it can be used even at high ambient temperatures up to 85°C. It also doesn't require subsequent recalibrations due to age, which increases productivity. The measuring head geometry including a stable tension mechanism simplifies installation and limits damage risk. The DSRK strain probe is available in 16 mm and 20 mm diameter and lengths of 240 to 2,000 mm. All options are available with 0-10V or 4-20mA output.
