Vishay Precision Group’s Model 182 extensometer is a strain gage-based force sensor that is designed for industrial, EN15000 and EN280 compliant off-highway vehicle and equipment safety applications. The Model 182 extensometer accurately measures deformation, or changes in the length of a solid structural body, with a 500 μƐ full-scale sensing range and necessary redundancy for EN15000 and EN280 compliance in safety applications. Its design consists of a high-quality strain gage sensing element, housed in a highly corrosion resistant coated alloy steel, with mounting via two bolt holes. Units are IP67-rated for dust and moisture protection. Multiple output choices, including mV/V, 4 to 20 mA and 0 to 10 V, are available as standard, along with alternate connection options. For vehicle safety applications, customers can select from either a CAN Open or SAE J1939 protocol, with further choice of a DT or M12 connector.
