Strain Gages BHB, BAM, and BAB250

Strain Gages BHB, BAM, and BAB250

1. Specifications

1) BHB Series
Imported Glass Fiber Reinforced Epoxy as backing material, the BHB series offer excellent creep and zero return performance. With low hydroscopicity (lower than 0.5%), excellent heat-resistance (stability is lower than 45PPM) and high response speed, BHB series are suitable for Class C3 and higher accuracy load cells manufacturing.


Key Specifications:
Backing Thickness(um) 32±5 Sealing Layer Thickness(um) 20±2
Backing Material Glass Fiber Reinforced Epoxy Grid Material Konstantan Foil
Resistance(Ω) 120,350,1000 Resistance Tolerance (%) ≤±0.15
Gage Factor 2.00~2.20 Dispersion of Gage Factor(%) ≤±1
Temp. Range(℃) -30~+80 STC Code 9,11,16,23,27
STC Precision(um/m/℃) 0.5 Insulation Resistance(MΩ) 10000
Strain Limit 2.0% Fatigue Life(±1000) 10000000

2) BAM Series

Special polyimide film backing, the BAM series offer better creep and back to zero function. With thin backing film, good heat resistance (stability is lower than 35PPM), low hydroscopicity(lower than 0.6%), excellent performance and easy bonding, BAM series are suitable for Class C3 and higher accuracy load cells manufacturing.


Key Specifications:

Temp. Range(℃) -269~+250 STC Code 9,11,16,23,27
STC Precision(um/m/℃) 1.0 Insulation Resistance(MΩ) 10000
Strain Limit 1.5% Fatigue Life(±1000) 10000000

2. Notes

1) For BHB and BAM series strain gages, ZEMIC offers the High Performance Epoxy: H-600, H-610. They are accordance with the function of the strain gages and can be applied as adhesive.
2) The recommended soldering temperature is 280℃, the maximum is 330℃. When soldering, it is better to control the temperature as well as the soldering time since extra heat is harm for the strain gages, especially the insulation.
3) Be careful and cautious when using BHB, BAB series strain gages, in consideration of the fragility of the backing film.
4) The special requirements of the lead wires should be specified in the strain gages designation system.
