Mini Strain Gage Eyes AV Market For Starts


The Micro-Measurements brand of Vishay Precision Group, Inc. unveils the G1350 C2K-Series strain gage, a miniature stacked rectangular rosette sensor built for reliable stress analysis of PCBs in standard to severe environments. The G1350 is designed to detect PCB surface strains at critical locations and is said to be particularly advantageous in applications requiring a higher resistance of 120Ω and 350Ω. Other applications include structural health monitoring, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), autonomous vehicles, instrumentation & control, machinery & equipment, motion control, Industry 4.0, robotics, smart cities, smart manufacturing, smart infrastructure, wearable electronics, and wireless.


The uniaxial linear stacked rosette C2K-06-G1350-350 features an active grid length of just 0.040” and an overall matrix of 0.20” diameter to allow spot-on installation on surface-mount components. The 3m of pre-attached three-conductor cable is built to ease and speed-up installation processes by eliminating the need of lead wire soldering after bonding.


Other features include a Modified Karma, or K-alloy (C2K), an epoxy overcoat for grid encapsulation, operating temperatures as high as +150°F (+66°C), and a much flatter thermal output curve than A-alloy.
