Bridge-Based Force, Pressure, and Torque Sensors

    Last Modified: February 16, 2016

    Sensors for measuring force, pressure, and torque, such as a load cell, are often based on a Wheatstone bridge. These sensors typically use a full-bridge configuration with a 350 Ω nominal bridge resistance.

    Sensor manufacturers often provide a table or polynomial equation to describe how electrical values scale to the physical phenomena the sensor measures. NI-DAQmx provides several scaling types for scaling data according to the specifications provided by the sensor manufacturer.
