Bridge Output Program



An auxiliary program that calculates bridge outputs for six different Wheatstone
bridge arrangements.

Configurations
Select from the six bridge configurations using the RADIO BUTTON:

1 + v Arms, Axial/Bending Half-bridge circuit typically used in low cost transducers. Nonlinear.

2 Arms, Bending/Shear Half-bridge circuit for low cost transducers as above except higher output and
linear behavior.

2 + 2v Arms, Axial/Bending Full-bridge circuit with two gages aligned with maximum principal strain and
two Poisson gauges. Typically used on column transducers. Nonlinear.

2 + 2v Arms, Bending Full-bridge circuit with two gauges aligned with maximum principal strain and two
Poisson gauges. Typically used on bending beams. Linear.

4 Arms, Differential Full-bridge circuit used on bending beams to cancel bending moments. All four gauges
are aligned with the maximum principal strain but two gauges are mounted in area of “higher” strain than the other
two. Bridge output is proportional to the difference in strain at the two gage locations irrespective of their actual
strain magnitudes. Nonlinear.


4 Arms, Bending/Shear Full-bridge circuit with four fully active gauges. Two gauges aligned with maximum
principal tension strain and two gages aligned with maximum principal compression strain. Linear.
