Bolt-on Strain Measurement Sensors

Effortless Installation, Exceptional Results

Datum Electronics offers a superior solution for your strain measurement needs with our bolt-on strain sensors and strain gauge amplifiers. These compact devices are ideal for harsh environments due to their robust construction and dust & water resistance. They excel in high-stress applications, providing accurate readings you can rely on.

Simplified Setup, Reliable Data

Forget about complex installations that require soldering or special adhesives. Datum’s bolt-on strain sensors are designed for ease of use. Simply attach them to your desired measurement point, and you’re ready to go. For temperature-compensated data, explore our 3-hole bolt-on sensor option. In conjunction with a Datum strain gauge amplifier (where required) you’ll gain a complete system for precise strain measurement.

Typical Applications for Datum Strain Measurement Sensors

Worldwide installations for:

  • Silo Weighing
  • Tank Weighing
  • Hopper Weighing
  • Bin Weighing
  • Bunker Weighing
  • Container Weight Verification
  • and other large industrial uses

The strain sensors are also used as an onboard weighing solution, when mounted to a vehicle’s bridge or axle, acting as weighing scales and providing reliable and accurate data to a vehicle’s system as live continuous data. Forklift trucks (transporting packages of varying weights), articulated vehicles, dump trucks, and agricultural trailers also benefit from having the ability to gain real-time weight measurements.

Off-the-shelf or Custom Strain Measurement Sensors

Bolt-On strain gauge and measurement sensors can be mass produced for customers requiring an OEM solution for their particular application, meaning you can have a load sensor tailored to your requirements, supplied in volumes, which can be retro fitted or installed in your production line.


  • Why should I choose Datum Electronics strain gauge, measurement sensors and amplifiers?
    Datum’s bolt-on strain gauge and measurement sensors have been developed to suit the harshest of environments – they are robust and water-resistant, and can be installed without soldering or special adhesives
  • What are the most common applications for Datum’s off-the-shelf strain measurement sensors and amplifiers?
    Datum Electronics’ range of bolt-on strain measurement sensors are regularly used in industrial applications such as Silo Weighing, Tank Weighing, Hopper Weighing, Bunker Weighing, Bin Weighing, Container Weight Verification and Onboard Vehicle Weighing
  • Can Datum’s standard strain gauges provide temperature compensation?
    Yes – our 3-hole bolt-on strain gauge can provide temperature compensation, along with a live continuous data stream to a vehicle’s systems
