HSM18 Electrical Resistance Strain Gauge

The HSM18 Electrical Resistance Strain Gauge training equipment from P.A Hilton is used in educational institutes to demonstrate the basic features of electrical resistance strain gauges. The equipment allows students to carry out experiments that help them to understand the application of strain gauges in measuring stress caused by bending and torsion. It allows instructors to illustrate the Wheatstone bridge through easy arrangements with the help of labels on the unit. To make the setup easier and simpler, the trainer unit contains color coding wires and sockets. 

Experimental capabilities:

  • To demonstrate the application of strain gauges in measuring stress bending and torsion 
  • To illustrate Wheatstone bridge arrangements for measuring the change of resistance 
  • With optional extras to show other methods of temperature compensation in conjunction with tension and compression specimens
  • Dummy, temperature compensation gauges
  • Wiring of strain gauges
