  • Long gauge strain sensor with 30cm to 10mtr measuring base (gauge length).
  • SC-01 is measuring strain between its anchoring brackets and is therefore immune to local defects or inhomogeneity.
  • Integrated temperature compensation.
  • SC-01 can be connected in series configuration.
  • Strain profile in concrete or metal structures (ceiling pillars, roofs, walls)
  • Crack monitoring
  • Deformations
  • Borehole deformation (embedded or grouted)
