Strain Indicator and Recorder

In this Micro-Measurements® iNotes™ video, Darryl illustrates the final phase of bonding Advanced Sensors Technology CEA strain gage. Specifically how to use Model P3 Strain Indicator and Recorder to test CEA strain gage.

he Model P3 Strain Indicator and Recorder is a portable, battery-operated instrument capable of simultaneously accepting four inputs from quarter-, half-, and full-bridge strain-gage circuits, including strain-gage-based transducers.

Designed for use in a wide variety of physical test and measurement applications, the P3 functions as bridge amplifier, static strain indicator, and digital data logger.

The P3 can be configured and operated directly from your PC with a separate software application included with each instrument.
