Measuring electronics for strain gauge sensors

Strain gauge sensors are often used in combination with measuring amplifiers or measuring electronics to enable precise measurements. The measuring electronics and strain gauge amplifiers we offer have been specially developed for carrying out precise and reliable measurements with strain gauge sensors. This includes a wide range of products that can record, amplify, filter and digitise signals from strain gauge sensors. The multi-channel measurement electronics can process signals from several strain gauge sensors simultaneously, which is useful for structural monitoring or machine monitoring, for example. For applications that require real-time monitoring, fast data processing and transmission is crucial. The integrated storage options for recording measurement data in measurement electronics offer various advantages and possibilities for improving data acquisition and processing. Compatibility with software is a crucial factor in measurement electronics as it enables the efficient use, analysis and further processing of the acquired data. Built-in calibration procedures are crucial for the accuracy and reliability of measurements. A robust and reliable design is essential to function reliably in harsh and industrial environments and to provide accurate measurement data in the long term.

DMS measuring amplifier

Our strain gauge measuring amplifiers offer you maximum precision and reliability for recording mechanical loads and strains. They are electronic devices for amplifying, conditioning and converting strain gauge signals into a form suitable for further processing or display. Strain gauges are thin metal strips whose tension or resistance changes when they are subjected to physical deformations. These deformations can be caused by force, pressure, tension or temperature changes. Designed for demanding industrial applications, they provide accurate measurement data you can rely on. A strain gauge amplifier can be either built-in or external, depending on the requirements and purpose of the system. A built-in strain gauge measuring amplifier is integrated into the measuring device or control unit and enables a compact and space-saving solution. An external strain gauge amplifier, on the other hand, is placed separately from the measuring cell or measuring device and may offer greater flexibility in the configuration of the system.

Strain gauge bridge amplifier SIL3 | PLE

The strain gauge bridge amplifiers not only offer you maximum precision and reliability, but also the safety required in critical applications. The devices are SIL3 and PLe certified and have been specially developed for the stringent requirements of safety-critical applications.

  • SIL3 (Safety Integrity Level 3) is a basis within the international IEC standard (EN 61508, EN 62061), which deals with the functional safety of electronic systems.The SIL3 requirements ensure that systems offer a very high level of reliability and fault tolerance, especially in safety-critical applications for the protection of people.
  • The five so-called Performance Levels (PL) from ‘a’ to ‘e’, as defined in the DIN EN ISO 13849-1 standard, are used to categorise safety-related performance. The SMM safety measurement module from Octogon is categorised in the highest level. With the SMM (Safety Measurement Module) function, our devices ensure continuous monitoring and diagnostics of the sensor and the entire system. They are built so robustly that they work reliably even in the harshest industrial environments.

IO-Link sensors & transmitters

IO-Link sensors & transmitters from octogon optimise data acquisition and data transmission in almost all industrial applications, resulting in improved process control and efficiency for our customers. Several process values or parameters can be transmitted simultaneously from one device via an unshielded standard cable using IO-Link. IO-Link is internationally standardised and works with all common fieldbuses and control systems.

With a view to the requirements of Industry 4.0 applications, the digital point-to-point connection IO-Link offers a manufacturer-independent, fieldbus-independent communication technology that offers a wide range of options for the intelligent connection of sensors and actuators to the control level of an automation system and communication between the plant control system and the field level.
