KFEM Series
Ultrahigh-elongation Foil Strain Gages

  • RoHS

Summary

KFEM series ultrahigh-elongation foil gages allow strain to be measured on various regions of structures, from elastic to plastic, and are suitable for large strain measurement.
They can measure 20 to 30% of material deformation.

*Strain limit of 20% to 30% is ensured for simple tension applied to the gage bonded on stainless steel (SUS 304) or aluminum alloy (A1050) at normal temperature.

Features

• Measurement of 20% to 30% material deformation possible
• Laminate protruding from the tip of gage base ensures improved adhesive property, making the gages hard to peel off.
• Foil material has an improved elongation property and is hard to disconnect.

When ordering, suffix the lead-wire cable code to the model number with a space in between.

E.g.
For the gage with a vinyl-coated flat 2-wire cable 10 m long pre-attached
 → KFEM-5-120-C1 L10M2R

If no lead-wire cable code is suffixed, the gage is delivered with gage leads only.
(Silver-covered copper wires 25 mm long)
