Foil Strain Gages for Printed Boards
PCB are used for varieties of products including mobile phones, car navigation systems and digital cameras. To evaluate the mechanical and thermal characteristics of these PCB, the KFRS gages were developed by integrating the advantageous features of KFG and KFR gages.
∙ Dimensions of gage base (Bondable space to mounted components and narrow parts)
1.2 mm long by 1.1 mm wide (Uniaxial), 2.5 mm long by 2.5 mm wide (Biaxial or triaxial)
∙ Linear expansion coefficient of 13 x 10-6/ºC, suitable for component-mounted board
∙ Self-temperature-compensation range is made as wide as –30 to 120ºC to satisfy thermal cyclic tests ofPCB

Besides the silver-clad copper lead wire, KFRS strain gages with pre-attached lead cables are available on request.
When ordering, please suffix the lead-wire cable code to the model number with a space in between.
KFRS-02-120-C1-13 suffixes N10C3 for the gage with a 10 cm long polyester-coated copper 3-wire cable becomes
