Whoever is testing, expects their measurements to be precise and accurate! In connection with strain gauge measurements and bridge sensors, the accompanying white paper provides an explanation to a number of terms and concepts that may be a bit confusing at times.

Once a test object is gauged, the connection of a data acquisition system to the strain gauges is a basic task. However, this task can only be performed once the test object is available, and the testing can only proceed once the connections and calibration of the inputs are verified. The connection, using conventional screw terminals, provides a temporary connection that can be easily removed, but this still takes time to insure performance and the correct connectivity.
The imc systems, in conjunction with the optional Termination Boxes from imc Partner A-TECH, can reduce the time needed for connection of each channel dramatically.
