SALIENT FEATURES :
ADTRON’S Strain measurement system demonstrates the principle and working of the specialized dedicated transducer known as “Strain Gauge” and also shown is one of its unique applications to measure strain in Kg. The trainer also consists of tare adjustment facility and digital readout, all enclosed in a specially designed user’s friendly elegant powder coated metal cabinet with intelligently designed circuit layout on imported acrylic front panel are some of its important features.
