Model P3 Strain Indicator and Recorder for Strain and Load Measurement
This portable, lightweight, and rugged four-channel instrument is designed to read and store data from four strain gage (gauge) or transducer inputs, providing full test functionality in field and laboratory test locations.
Capable of accepting quarter-, half-, and full-bridge circuit inputs, the Model P3 provides on-board bridge completion resistors of 120 Ω, 350 Ω, and 1000 Ω; automatic zero-balancing and calibration; an LCD display for real-time test data reading; and a removable flash drive for data storage. Testing is fully configured via intuitive, menu-driven operational steps from the display. While fully operational with internal battery power for field testing, the instrument has an AC power line input and a USB port for power, data output and optional computer control.
