The Precision EPC Series Earth Pressure Cells are designed to measure total pressure in earth fills and embankments. They may also be used to measure earth bearing pressure on foundation slabs and footings and at the tips of piles. A vibrating wire Straingage pressure sensor converts this pressure into an electrical signal which is transmitted to the readout location.
Dual diaphragm design with the pressure medium sealed between the pressure-sensing surface and strain-gage bonded diaphragm enables transmission of minute displacement through enlargement.
The EPC-A series is underground soil pressure transducers with a pressure-sensing surface 80 mm in diameter. The stainless steel design enables marine civil engineering applications applications.
