CRL Announces Strain Sensor for Curved Mounting Surfaces
Columbia Research Laboratories has introduced a new sensor designed to accurately measure strain on curved mounting surfaces. Series DT3747 sensors are customized to measure circumferential strain around the diameter of the surface to which it is mounted. Featuring the accuracy, ruggedness, and ease of installation found in Columbia’s flight-qualified Series DTD284, DT3747 models are available to compensate materials commonly used in aircraft structural fabrication. Similar devices have been utilized to monitor rocket motor expansion. They can also be used in many industrial and military applications involving pipe expansion measurements, explosive body applications, aircraft surface load, and engine monitoring of all types.
