What Are Strain/Bridge Input Modules?

C Series Strain/Bridge Input Modules measure signals from bridge-based sensors such as strain gages, load cells, and more. You can use these products to excite, condition, acquire, and digitize measurements.

Easily Connect to Strain Gages

C Series Strain/Bridge Input Modules and the accompanying NI software make it fast to connect strain gages and load cells to the module and begin testing, expediting your time to first test.

Program in C, .NET, and More

C Series Strain/Bridge Input Modules work with our free NI-DAQmx driver. You can take advantage of our documentation and example programs to begin programming your sound or vibration tests in the programming language of your choosing—including LabVIEW, Python, C, or C#.NET—for flexibility.

Acquire Strain Data without Programming

With C Series Strain/Bridge Input Modules, you easily can gather strain and load data from strain gages and load cells. Avoid programming by using FlexLogger™ application software: Spend time gathering data, not learning a new language.
