The input resistance is the resistance that can be measured at the transducer connections where the excitation is connected. Due to the fact that additional resistors for balancing of the force transducer are connected to the Wheatstone bridge, the input and output resistance values can vary.
When connecting force transducers in parallel, please remember that the resistance of the circuit as a whole is reduced. This total resistance must not exceed the limit specified in the amplifier's operating manual.
