ITM Strain Gauging Services

Custom Strain Gauge Load Cell with Calipers and Drawings

Custom Strain Gauge Load Cell with Calipers and Drawings

Our strain gauge instrumentation team makes tough measurements 

Quantifying stress, strain and force within a structure using real-world strain gauge measurements is commonly used to verify FEA models and estimate a component’s fatigue life. Our engineers and technicians have planned and implemented challenging installations for our customers around the globe. Information from these strain gauge installations has allowed our customers to validate their designs and improve their product’s reliability. 

Contact ITM’s Strain Lab

Installing strain gauges in the field for structural and fatigue measurements requires expertise and experience. Whether you use our iTestSystem software to stream and analyze strain signals for static measurements and real-world fatigue data acquisition or contract our software engineers to build a real time strain monitoring or load cell system, we will make sure you acquire quality strain data. 

Contact our strain lab and technicians to install strain gauges on test specimens or to design, build, calibrate, and test strain-based load cells. 

Strain Lab Contact Info: Ryan.Welker@iTestSystem.com, (844) 837-8797 

 

ITM presents Boiler Monitoring Solutions @AF & PA Conference 2017

AF and PA 2017 Conference Presentation Page

Learn more about the Hopper Ash Level Thermocouple (HALT) monitoring system and other Boiler Monitoring Solutions from ITM, at the 2017 American Forest & Paper Association (AF & PA) Meeting and Conference in Atlanta, GA on Feb. 8th at 9:20AM.

ITM adds NI-9217 compatibility to iTestSystem

NI 9217 RTD cDAQ Module

We are pleased to announce that the NI-9217 resistance temperature detector (RTD) analog input module can now be used with iTestSystem and NI CompactDAQ.  The NI-9217 features 4 analog inputs, 24-bit resolution, and an aggregate sampling rate of 5 S/s (1.25 S/s per channel) in high accuracy mode.  The high accuracy mode has built in 50/60 Hz noise rejection and less than a 1 °C accuracy error over its entire operating temperature range.

Tip: Since the NI-9217 is the first CompactDAQ RTD module on the compatibility list,  a new RTD channel type was added to iTestSystem.  Right click on Channels in the project tree and select Create New > RTD.
