Datum Electronics’ bolt-on strain sensors provide the perfect answers to many strain measurement specifications. They are robust, dust & water-resistant, and suitable for the harshest of environments, including high-stress level applications. They can be mounted to a vehicle’s bridge or axle to act as weighing scales and continuously provide reliable and accurate live data to the vehicle’s system. Forklift trucks with a range of capacities, articulated vehicles, dump trucks and agricultural trailers also benefit from real-time weight measurements.

Bolt-on strain gauge sensors are compact in size, can provide temperature compensation and have been designed for easy installation without the need for soldering or gauge adhesive. They can be mass produced for customers who require an OEM solution for their particular application: in other words, a load sensor can be tailored to a given set of requirements and supplied in volume for retrofitting or installation in a production line.
