Main features & Overview


The magnetically mounted wireless strain sensor QE2008-W measures the strain directly at the location where is mounted, providing a measurement that has the same quality and performances as with bonded strain gauges.The Sensormate press-on technology implements a strain gauge positioned under a stainless protective film. When the sensor is mounted on a metallic object, the magnets hold so strictly that frictional contact occurs and allows a reliable measurement.

The mounting of the sensor is quick, simple and non-destructive, allowing for an easy setup and increasing the daily productivity.

The integrated electronics contains a state-of-the-art processing component, which allows hi-end measurements and wireless communication via the Bluetooth 5.0 protocol. The adopted components allows for a low-energy operation, extending the battery life to several working hours.

An on-board accelerometer allows the user to check the correct mounting of the sensor and assure an accurate measurement result. The internal RAM memory helps when a fast measurement is needed, allowing to store high resolution data.
