Type of lead wire

  • Temperature-integrated strain gauges (with thermocouple)
  • These are our unique strain gauges having thermocouple integrated leadwires. One core of the three-core parallel leadwire is made of Cu-Ni wire while two other cores are made of ordinary copper wire. A T-type thermocouple is composed of the Cu-Ni wire and the copper wire, and one of the gauge tabs works as a thermocouple junction. Simultaneous measurement of strain (in quarter bridge 3-wire method) and temperature (with T thermocouple) is possible by using TML data loggers. This function is applicable to most of TML foil strain gauges including F series gauges.
    * Data loggers applicable to the measurement of these gauges are TDS-540/-530/-303/-300/-630/-602/ -601A/-601/-102/-101R and TC-32K/-31K. Measurement using a dynamic strainmeter is not possible.

  • Extension lead wires
  • Strain gauges are connected to strain measuring instruments using extension leadwires. Various types of leadwires are available for selection depending on the usage conditions. In addition, most of TML strain gauges are available with extension leadwires preattached at our factory. Those leadwire-integrated strain gauges greatly save the leadwire connection works during the strain gauge installation. Please feel free to contact TML or your local representative for the extension leadwires and the leadwire-integrated strain gauges.

  • How to connect the strain gauge Leaded
  • Most TML strain gauges are available with extension leadwires preattached for the customer convenience.
    We have several methods for connecting leadwires to be chosen depending on conditions such as the type of
    strain gauge and leadwire, measurement environments, and so on.



  • Color coding of strain gauge lead wires
  • The lead wires are color-coded for multi-element strain gauges with integral lead wires such as 2-element gauge, 3-element gauge and strss gauge.

  • Strain gauge with a connector
  • 1m lead with a strain gauge attached vinyl lead wire terminal connector. F, PF, P gauge connector will connect with the processing of the series lead. You can use the connector with strain gauge and the specimen if there is more than one such body the same gauge connection in the vicinity of the specimen to be extended, No need for wiring to reduce the disposal of the lead can.

  • Relay cable
  • GLJ-5A This relay cable consists of an extension and relay terminals of the same type as those used in the switching box. The cable allows connection of a quarter-bridge strain gauge. By routing the relay cable to a location near the test specimen, the strain gauge does not require long lead wires for attachment to the specimen. Relay cable can be used repeatedly.
