The next generation of Elsys SGA2 MK2 strain gauge amplifiers now offers USB configuration and auto-offset compensation with high bandwidth.

The SGA2 MK2 is well suited for high dynamic material deformation testing, material characterisation or load cell measurements.

Elsys strain gauge amplifier SGA2 was introduced in 2009 and is now available as SGA2 MK2 with new features and in a new design.

Auto-offset calibration allows to compensate easy and fast any unbalanced or pre-loaded strain gauge bridge.
