Gauges For Concrete KFG & KC
Listed here are the KFG series gauges with a suitable lead wire cable for strain measurement of concrete.
Applicable Adhesives and Operating Temperature Range after Curing (With vinyl-coated flat cable)
CC-35: -10 to 80°C
Notes on pre-attached lead wire cables
- Standard color ofthe 2-wire cable pre-attached to uniaxial gages is red (R). If desired, a white, green, yellow or black cable can be pre-attached.
- Standard 3-wire cable pre-attached to uniaxial gages has red stripes (R). If desired, the red stripes can be changed to blue or yellow stripes.
- In the case of a biaxial gage, 2-wire cables are color-coded with red and white stripes for 0° and 90°, respectively and 3-wire cables, with red and yellow stripes for 0° and 90°,respectively. Letter code is S in common.
- In the case of a triaxial gage, 2-wire cables are color-coded with red, white and green stripes for 0°, 90°, and 45°, respectively and 3-wire cables with red, yellow and blue stripes for 0°, 90°, and 45°, respectively. Letter code is S in common.
The following models with the lead wire cable code L1M3R are delivered with a vinyl-coated flat 3-wire cable 1m long pre-attached.
The following model with the lead wire cable code L1M3S is delivered with a vinyl-coated flat 3-wire cable 1 m long pre-attached.
KC Series Wire Strain Gauges
Featuring a longer gage length, the KC series gauges are wire strain gauges suitable for mean strain measurement of concrete under test. Usually, a model with the gage length over 3 times longer than the maximum diameter of the aggregate is selected for the purpose.
Applicable Adhesives and Operating Temperature Range after Curing CC-35: -30 to 120°C
