Get up to speed with the HBM Academy

HBM – a market leader in the field of test and measurement – has announced the dates for its latest series of free webinars, which take place on 13th – 14th June 2016.

Offered exclusively by the HBM Academy, the informative seminars have been designed to fit in with challenging time constraints which can often make attending relevant training courses difficult.  Covering aspects of strain gauge measurement and the professional analysis of measurement data, the first seminar, ‘Assess and Minimise Measurement Uncertainty for Strain Gauge Measurements’, takes place on June 13th at 2pm. 

This webinar will look at the influence quantities that determine the accuracy of strain gauge measurement and focus on what measurements can be taken to minimise measurement errors.  Presented by Jens Boersch, International Product Manager for Electrical Strain Gauges, participants will also learn how to assess measurement uncertainty and confidently evaluate test results.

Following on from this, ‘Understanding the Whetstone Bridge’ on June 14th at 2pm looks at what to consider for trustworthy measurements and which pitfalls to avoid.  As the resistance of strain gauges is usually measured using Whetstone Bridge configurations, Sandro Di Natale, Product Manager MGCPlus, CANHEAD, will explain: why the non-linearity of the Whetstone Bridge configuration is not an issue, how to compensate for wire resistances in quarter bridges with only three wires and how to achieve the best measurement results in a noisy environment by using carrier frequency.

Each webinar, which normally takes a maximum of 30 minutes, can also be easily accessed at a later date or simply used as a refresher course.  As an added benefit, all registered attendees will receive a link to the webinar, via email, after the presentation.

All HBM webinars are free of charge and open to anyone.  Spaces are limited and available on a first come, first served basis. Please reserve your spot by booking at
