  • Calculation Method

    The input data are converted to the resulting value either in a linear fashion with the slope determined as the transmission ratio, or in a piecewise linear fashion according to the calibration table

  • Synchronization

    Interface converter synchronizes the digital sensors. This allows to observe the interaction in different points (locations of the digital sensors) of the facility and draw diagrams.

  • Hardware Versions

    Standard: laboratory design in a plastic cover (green).
    OEM: board covered with a sealing compound.
    Heavy Duty*: depending on the task specifics, this may be a version in a heavy duty cover (black) or location of the standard-design unit in an air-tight cover (with a transparent lid).
    Ex-proof*: in a heavy duty cover with the explosion protection system of 0ExiaIICT6 X type.
    *The cost is calculated individually.

Stable characteristics and high reliability in operation


of the ZET 7110 Digital Strain Gauges

The ZET 7110 module is intended for measuring the relative deformation using primary transducers based on tension gauges. These may be either assembled tension gauges (force gauges, torque gauges), or detachable tension gauges connected using half-bridge or bridge mode.

Gauge runs on DC voltage, so ZET 7110 is used for static measurements.

The sensors are fixed on the object of measurement while the interface units ensuring information transmission are mounted in an air-tight box.

An advantage of the ZETSENSOR units is easy installation and uninstallation as well as indication of feed and signal transmission which, in its turn, facilitates diagnostics of the system at the facility.


The ZET 7111 gauge is intended for dynamic measurements which inputs AC to the bridge circuit.

Application Scope

of the ZET 7110 Digital Strain Gauges

  • Mechanical testing of materials

  • Deformation studies

    studying deformation distribution in parts of machines, structures, and constructions

  • Measurement of mechanical deformations

  • Stress determination

    in the depth of operated or tested concrete and reinforced concrete structures (foundation slabs, columns, beams, and ceiling slabs), in weighing equipment of various purposes

Operation Principles

of the ZET 7110 Digital Strain Gauges

The digital strain gauge station consists of a tension gauge (tension bridge) and the ZET 7110 measuring unit which converts the signal from the gauge to the values of force, tension, pressure, etc. The resulting values are transmitted via CAN 2.0 interface.


Rules for Using in Explosion-Hazard Areas

for the ZET 7110 Digital Strain Gauges

When using digital gauges in explosion-hazard areas, one should observe the applicable national requirements.

Installation in explosion-hazard areas is allowed for heavy duty design (metal cover) digital gauges intended for use in explosion-hazard areas and bearing the relevant marking on their bodies: 0ExiaIICT6 X.

For the communication via data transmission channels and electric circuits the circuits of digital gauges installed in explosion-hazard areas shall be connected to interface converters and power supply sources through intrinsic safety barriers located in explosion-safe areas. A typical connection diagram for digital gauges installed in explosion-hazard zones is provided on the figure, and the recommended types of intrinsic safe barriers, in the table below.

Connection Diagrams

of the ZET 7110 Digital Strain Gauges

The use of load sensors is very convenient when building distributed measurement networks. As opposed to conventional centralized measurement circuits, connection of “star” type is not required, which allows for decreasing the overall length of circuits. Since the data are transmitted in a digital form, the requirements for data transmission channel can be lowered and less expensive cable can be used for network building.

When building a measurement network, ZET 7110 gauges are connected in series; the resulting measurement chain is then connected to a computer using an interface converter: ZET 7174 (CAN ↔ USB), ZET 7176 (CAN ↔ Ethernet or Wi-Fi), ZET 7177 (CAN ↔ GSM) or ZET 7172S + ZET 7172M + ZET 7174/ZET7176 kit (data transmission via radio channel).


The number of gauges connected to ZET 7174 shall not exceed 4. ZETLAB software supports connection of up to 200 digital gauges to a single computer.
