Vws-2100 Embedment Strain Gauge

Categories: ,

Description

Particularly suitable for the long-term monitoring of concrete structures.

Consists of two end flanges with a tensioned steel wire between them. As concrete undergoes strain, the end blocks will move and the tension in the wire changes. A vibrating wire readout generates voltage pulses in the magnet/coil at the centre of the gauge and measures the resonant frequency of vibration.

Applications:

Driven and bored piles
Tunnels and deep excavations
Concrete Dams
Mass concrete pours
Building foundations
Retaining Walls

Features:

  • Reliable long-term performance and accuracy
  • Rugged, suitable for demanding environments
  • Not affected by long cable lengths
  • Suitable for direct embedment in concrete
  • Output resistant to electrical noise
  • Thermally aged to minimise long term drift & calibration changes
