Wireless Strain Gauge SenSpot™ Sensor

Description

Wireless Strain SenSpot™ sensors offer a breakthrough technology for real-time and long-term structural health monitoring.  SenSpot™ strain gauge uses Resensys’s proprietary sensing, scheduling and ultra-low power synchronization technology. SenSpot™ is designed to operate maintenance-free for more than a decade. After installation, SenSpot™ does not need calibration, battery replacement, or any other maintenance during its entire service life.

Applications
  • Long- term and continuous monitoring of strain (stress)
  • Detecting short-lived and transient high-strain events, e.g., caused by fast moving trucks on highway bridges or by turbulence on airframes
  • Fatigue awareness, fatigue life analysis (remaining useful life estimation)
  • Fast, easy-to-install adhesive mount
  • Examples applications:
    • Highway bridges
    • Airframes
    • Pipelines
    • Machines, cranes, etc.
    • Truck tests, bridge load rating
