Strain Gages - VSM4000 Arc Weldable Strain Gage

VSM4000 Arc Weldable Strain Gage

The Model 4000 basically consists of a length of steel wire tensioned between two mounting blocks that are arc welded to the surface of a structural steel member. Deformation of the structure under load produces relative movement between the two mounting blocks causing a change in the wire tension and a corresponding change in its frequency of vibration.
