Strain Gauges and Thermometers
The cable lengths depend from many factors, first of all installation and cable protections (screen, earth, etc...). Assuming that instruments are installed in a workmanlike, for the maximum cable lengths should be followed the next suggestions:
DIGITAL INSTRUMENTS: see FAQ#073
ANALOGUE INSTRUMENTS: see both documents:
Cable length guide line with internal multiplexers

FAQ#029 - What is the Real Gauge Factor reported in the Specifications and Compliance Certificates of both VW embedded and arc-weldable strain-gauges?
The gauge factors for VW strain-gauges are generic factors calculated from the dimensions and the physical properties of the gauge material. The VW strain-gauges arep roduced in series with industrial method, so each strain gauge is equal to the other: it means that the gauge factor of VW strain gauges do not change.
The Gauge Factor is checked on some strain gauges from each manufacturing batch.
FAQ#028 - Are the vibrating wire strain-gauges and spot weldable VW strain gauges equipped with temperature sensors?
Yes, vibrating wire strain-gauges, as well as all other Sisgeo's vibrating wire instruments, are equipped with a built-in NTC thermistor YSI 44005 type (3000 Ohm at 25°C). Thermistor is included in the instrument price and therefore there is not additional cost for it.
