Would your product or system benefit from real-time, in-situ force measurement feedback, but you don’t have the space to add a sensor? Let HITEC apply strain gauges to one or more load-bearing parts and turn them into intelligent sensors.

We call it transducerizing your component. Applying strain gauge technology directly to a customer-supplied component or system allows you to measure static and dynamic forces and loads without adding an external sensor. 

We can also temperature-compensate your product, minimizing temperature effects across the full range that the component will encounter. We then calibrate your gauged product, turning it into a highly accurate sensor for on-site use.


HITEC provides:

  • A skilled team of application engineers and technician staff with an average 15 years of strain gauge technology experience
