Lightweight and Compact Strain Gauges from Bestech Australia

Strain gauges are effective and efficient in providing simple data processing


The broad range of strain gauges offered by Bestech Australia have simple construction, with a small mass and volume so they don’t interfere with the object or specimen.

Small gauge length for accurate evaluation of localised stress

  • Receive good frequency response for tracking rapid fluctuations in stress
  • Perform simultaneous measurement of multiple and remote points
  • Easily process data with the electrical output

Different strain gauge orientation for various applications

  • General purpose foil gauge for stress concentration and torque
  • Transducer strain gauges with creep compensation
  • Waterproof gauge with coating of epoxy resin and integral lead wire
  • Temperature integrated strain gauge with thermocouple
  • Polyester backed foil strain gauges for metal, concrete and mortar
  • Wood strain gauge for long term measurement on wood
  • One-side gauge: Separated measurement of bending and axial strains of a plate

Accurate structure stress determination with strain gauges

  • Metal backing strain gauge for concrete surface
  • Magnetic field use strain gauge with twisted or shielded lead wire
  • Mould strain gauge is embedded in concrete or mortar for loading test
  • Asphalt strain gauge with waterproofing and heat resistance up to 200 C
  • Post-yield strain gauge for large strain measurement up to 20%
  • Crack strain gauge to measure length of crack
  • Semiconductor strain gauges for high gauge factor

Highly versatile composite material strain gauges

  • Foil strain gauges for wood and gypsum, low elastic modulus materials
  • Foil strain gauges for plastics, temperature compensated for acrylic or epoxy resin
  • Foil strain gauge for cryogenic temperature usable to -196 C
  • Foil strain gauge for high temperature to 300 C
  • Weldable strain gauges installed by spot welding for high temperature to 800 C
  • Bolt gauge is embedded in a pre-drilled hole of a bolt for axial strain measurement

Strain gauges are used to determine the stress in a structure by bonding them on the surface of the specimen and measuring the resultant change in its resistance. A wide range of strain gauges are available from Bestech Australia for various applications.
