Bridge Configurations

    Last Modified: February 16, 2016

    There are three types of bridge configurations: quarter-bridge, half-bridge, and full-bridge. The number of active element legs in the Wheatstone bridge determines the kind of bridge configuration.

    Configuration Number of Active Elements
    Quarter-bridge 1
    Half-bridge 2
    Full-bridge 4

    Strain gages use variations of these bridge configurations.
