Soldering Terminals for Strain Gauges

For strain gauges with leads or wires, solder terminals should be installed between the connecting cables and the strain gauge itself. This will facilitate the execution of a perfect solder joint and provide strain relief for the strain gauge connections.

The solder terminals are installed in the same way on the test object as on the strain gauge.

HBM offers solder terminals in various designs and dimensions.
