Sherborne Sensors | Tue, 21 Oct 2014
Apart from its originally intended purpose for strain measurement, the metallic resistance strain gauge is extremely commonplace in transducer applications. Its low cost, high accuracy and ease of application make it an ideal transduction element and it is widely used in pressure, load, force, torque and displacement transducers. However, this article in Sherborne Sensors’ ‘Mike Might Know’ series focuses on semiconductor strain sensors.
