Baumer strain sensors allow cost-effective force measurement for nearly all application areas. Regardless of whether in limited spaces, for robust outdoor applications, or the industrial sector, we always offer you the right solution for measuring large forces in ongoing processes.


Baumer strain sensors usually consist of a strain body and strain gauges. The strain sensor is screwed to a machine structure with screws. This machine structure deforms with the application of force, and this deformation is picked up by the strain body through friction, so that strains occur on the material surface. The strain is measured using the strain gauges applied to the surface of the measuring body. The strain gauges convert the mechanical strain into an electrical resistance change and act as mechanical-electrical converters. The intelligent connection of the individual strain gauges to a Wheatstone bridge enables the measurement of even the smallest strains. These strains measured with the aid of the strain gauges thus generate a stress change proportional to the strain which can be easily evaluated with the aid of the integrated amplifier electronics.
