Usually, a T-type thermocouple is installed near the gage, while the KMC series gages of H4 type do not require such the installation since they are equipped with a built-in thermocouple.

KFRP Series
Foil Strain Gages for Composite Materials
The KFRP series foil strain gages are self-temperature-compensation gages (SELCOM® gages) suitable for strain measurement of composite materials such as CFRP and GFRP. The special gage pattern minimizes the effect of self-heating due to gage current and the effect of reinforcement of low-elasticity materials. To ensure accurate measurement by avoiding the self-heating effect of gage current, consider the following: 1. Select a lower bridge excitation if the amplifier allows selection. 2. Active-dummy method. 3. 350Ω strain gages
