Bulk Metal® Foil Strain Gauge TCR Performance
Precision strain gages built on MM's unique Bulk Metal® Foil technology provide very low temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) and exceptional long-term stability even in extreme temperatures. This easily-reproducible one-minute video demonstrates the comparative thermal shock and temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) performance of foil strain gage technology. Since TCR is directly proportional to each sensor technology's overall stability (such as load-life stability, short-term overload, shock and vibration, etc.), TCR can be used as a readily accessible figure of merit for each technology.
