Understanding the Wheatstone Bridge


The resistance change of strain gauges is usually measured using Wheatstone bridge configurations. This webinar will discuss what is needed to achieve accurate measurements and possible pitfalls to avoid.

What you will learn in this webinar:

  • Why the non-linearity of the Wheatstone bridge configuration is acceptable
  • How to compensate for wire resistances in quarter bridges with only three wires
  • How to achieve good measurement results in noisy environments by using carrier frequency

This webinar was originally recorded on October 4, 2016.
