Wide Range of Foil Strain Sensors Now Added to In-Stock Program
MALVERN, Pa. — April 21, 2016 — Micro-Measurements®, a Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (VPG) brand, today announced that it has doubled its Super Stock program offerings. The off-the-shelf delivery program now offers Micro-Measurements’ worldwide network of customers an even broader range of general purpose foil strain sensors. The new pattern offerings cover the gamut of Micro-Measurements’ product portfolio.
New Super Stock general-purpose patterns are available in linear, tee rosette, stacked rosette, rectangular rosette and shear/torque configurations. The strain sensors are offered in a wide variety of sizes with resistance values in 120 Ω, 350 Ω and 1,000 Ω.
The Micro-Measurements Super Stock program is designed to reduce lead times and help keep design engineers on schedule and meet their customers’ tight deadlines. Eliminating the need to compromise in testing applications, the program’s lineup includes a variety of stress analysis patterns, ensuring that the right sensor for the best result is always available. Super Stock patterns include the most popular Micro-Measurements precision stress analysis strain sensors that are used to meet the most demanding testing requirements in the transportation, infrastructure and consumer markets.
