Strain Gauges (M Serie)

HBM Hottinger Baldwin Messtechnik GmbH

Strain Gauges (M Serie) by HBM Hottinger Baldwin Messtechnik GmbH

M series strain gauges have been specially developed for high resistance to alternating loads at increased strain levels and high temperatures up to 300 °C. These are foil strain gauges with measuring grids made of a special nickel-chromium alloy.

HBM offers this special strain gauge with various geometries, measuring grid lengths and temperature response matching
New materials offering high strength such as fiber composites pose a major challenge for strain gauges used for measurements. In particular when pushing components to their mechanical limit of performance. Situations may arise where a strain gauge subjected to alternating loads at increased load levels is weakened and fails earlier than the component under test. The M series has been specially developed for high resistance to alternating loads and allows for testing of materials featuring high strength.

  • LM1: Linear strain gauge with one measuring grid for strain measurements in one direction.
  • TM1: T rosette with two measuring grids arranged at an angle of 90° to each other. For measuring tensile and compressive stress.
  • TM9: Stacked T rosette with two measuring grids arranged at an angle of 90° to eacht other. For measuring tensile and compressive stress.
  • XM4: V-shaped strain gauge with two measuring grids arranged at an angle of ±45°. For determining torsion and shear stress.
  • RM8: Rectangular rosette with three measuring grids arranged at angles of 0°/45°/90°. Biaxial stress state with unknown principal stress directions.
  • RM9: Stacked rosette with three measuring grids arranged at angles of 0°/45°/90°. Biaxial stress state with unknown principal stress directions.
