Strain-gauge measurement systems can be described as a hardware and software measurement suite based on multi-channel data acquisition system ZET 058 and ZETLAB TENZO software. The operating principle of the system is based on conversion of analog electrical signals of strain gauge transducers and current output sensors into a digital format with further transmission of the measurement data to the PC via digital interface.
Strain gauge system ZET 058 provide DC and AC power supply of the primary transducers. Thus, it is possible to use them for signals’ data acquisition and processing in the course of static and dynamic measurements.
Strain gauge system ZET 058 used together with ZETLAB software enables measurement data acquisition in real-time mode by several channels simultaneously. Possible connection options for the strain gauge transducer (with the use of terminal bus, which is included into delivery scope) are as follows: quarter bridge (only for strain gauge films), half-bridge and full-bridge.
