SELF-TEMPERATURE COMPENSATION (S-T-C)
In this podcast Anton discusses about Self-Temperature Compensation (S-T-C).
All gages with XX as the second code group in the gage designation are self-temperature-compensated for use on structural materials with specific thermal expansion coefficients. The table below lists S-T-C numbers and test specimen materials to which gages are thermally matched. When ordering, replace the XX code group with the desired S-T-C number, which is the approximate thermal expansion coefficient of the structural material in ppm/°F. The Gage Designation System lists the available S-T-C numbers for specific grid alloys. The 06 and 13 values, available in A and K alloys, are most common and more likely to be in stock. When not otherwise specified, the 06 compensation is shipped.
