Instrotech 218/09:Total solutions for weighing, level control stress and fatigue monitoring

August 22nd, 2012, Published in Articles: EngineerIT

Vishay’s Model 178 extensometer is a load sensor designed for force measurement on any load-bearing structure. This extensometer provides the total solution for weighing, level control, stress and fatigue monitoring. The design also allows multiple sensors to be permanently mounted for more complex stress profiling and analysis. It provides the solution for non-intrusive level measurements for materials that are subject to uneven buildup, bridging, or sidewall collection. Also, liquids or wetted materials that are not suited for direct contact level measurement are an ideal application for the model 178 extensometer. The design of the model 178 makes it an excellent solution for retrofitting existing structures without compromise of the integrity of the vessel or structure. The 178 has application in tank weighing or level systems, agricultural equipment, rolling mill sensing, moment sensing, structural loading measurements and bridge structures.
