Smart Strain Gauge module
Smart Strain Gauges can be mounted on any deforming surface to measure the tension/compression under changing loads.
The Smart Strain Gauge signals can be transferred to any Android device over Bluetotth connection with the Smart Strain Gauge module.
The application area is almost unlimited, but as an example:
If we put Smart Strain Gauges on a kayak paddle's both sides, all the movements of the athlete will be easy to monitor during training or a run. This can give important feedback for both the athlete and the trainers.
Smart Strain Gauges are delivered in kit for simple assembly. Easy assemble, no need for soldering!
Industries: machinery, R&D, construction, etc.
Application area: laboratory, material testing, sports
Imagination is the limit! Almost any object can be transformed into a load sensor with the Smart Strain Gauges.
The 2 parts of the system are the Smart Strain Gauge and the SmartLoadCell module:
SmartLoadCell modules are available in 1 and 2 channel versions. The 2-channel version can be used with 2 Smart Strain Gauge at the same time (for example by a kayak-paddle: left and right side).
Smart Strain Gauges are available in tension/compression and in torque versions for the different applications.
Smart Strain Gauges are easy to install. They are shipped with all the installation supplement. Steps for installation:
- Preparation of the surface
- Sticking the Smart Strain Gauge on the surface
- Plug the cable in the SmartLoadCell module
- Calibrate the system
We provide 2 different applications for the SmartLaodCells:
1., SmartLoadCell.apk – this application can connect to 1 SmartLoadCell module (1 or 2 channel ones too). Measurement graph is displayed real time and in the history too.
2., SmartLoadCell_MULTI – this application can be connected to maximum 7 SmartLoadCell modules (load cells). All load cells actual and maximum values can be monitored on the same screen. Graphs of the measurements can be viewed in the history.
