Full bridge configurations provide all four active gages which make up the Wheatstone bridge and the intra bridge circuit is integrated on a common backing matrix providing more accurate gage placement. Bridge balance is far simpler, while increasing reliability by eliminating all intra bridge solder connections. Compared to bonding multiple individual strain gages, the full-bridge devices provide simplified, more precise alignment and reduced bonding operations. Finished transducer designs can therefore remain reliable, yet cost-effective, without sacrificing accuracy and performance. This high reliability approach to transducer gage design makes them an excellent choice for aerospace, medical, automotive and subsea applications.
