Foil Strain Gages with a Temperature Sensor
The KFGT gages are foil strain gages incorporating a T-type thermocouple for simultaneous measurement of strain and temperature.
They ensure efficient strain measurement under environments where temperature change or temperature gradient requires simultaneous measurement of strain and temperature.
They also provide highly precise compensation of thermally-induced apparent strain. It is recommended to use Kyowa data logger UCAM-60C M14 as a measuring instrument.
