KG-06 Series – Extensometer

Support & Downloads

Product Description

The Magtrol KG-06 Extensometer is designed for measuring deformations of construction or machined parts under load. Because its output signal is proportional to the applied load, it can be used as either a load cell or a force transducer.

Features

  • Transducer with Strain Gauge technology
  • Impedance 1000
  • Temperature-Compensated
  • Protection Class IP 65
  • Compact Dimensions (6.5mm height)
  • Robust Design
  • Very Flat Construction
  • Easy mounting on machined flat surface
  • Maintenance-free
