Benefit from the many new advantages of measuring with light – without having to abandon the ruggedness and convenience of the classical strain gauge.
Temperature compensation for more accurate measurement results
Optical sensors, for example K-OR or K-OL from HBM are highly temperature dependent. In the event of temperature variations during strain measurement, the resulting mechanical and thermal strain is measured. However, if mechanical strain only is to be measured, the thermal strain needs to be compensated for. With K-OTC, catman®AP measurement software enables mathematical compensation to be achieved. The software is easy to use and mathematical compensation, too, becomes a simple task.
Due to its innovative properties, the K-OTC optical sensor is particularly suitable for applications in experimental stress analysis, for example in materials testing or high-voltage applications.
