Balancing and compensating measures make an essential contribution to meeting the target sensor specifications. In practical terms, this means integrating fixed or temperature-variable resistors into the Wheatstone bridge circuit or into the excitation lines. These adjustment and compensating resistors are characterized by their practical design. The resistor networks can be easily installed similar to strain gauges.
- Compensation of the Wheatstone bridge circuit’s temperature response error, also called temperature compensation of the zero point (TC0)
- Correction of an imbalance in the Wheatstone bridge circuit, also called bridge or zero balance
- Compensation of the transducer sensitivity’s temperature dependency, also called compensation of the temperature coefficient of sensitivity (TCS)
