The LEAP Technology Strain Gauge is an elastomeric capacitive strain gauge capable of far exceeding the measurable strain of other gauges.
Unlike other strain gauges, these are made from silicone elastomer, allowing them to be glued or embedded onto or into a large variety of substrates and host materials. They are elastic in all directions.
The capacitive nature of these strain gauges ensures high repeatability even in environmentally challenging applications.
Additional product info
The device is available in two standard variants. One of which contains electronics, converting the capacitance directly to a voltage signal, and the other being a bare strain gauge (capacitor) which can be measured by the LEAP WE series measurement electronics.
