Special impedance

The force transducers and the torque meters are made from strain gauges connected via a Wheatstone bridge. The impedance of this bridge depends on the type of gauges (usually 350 Ω) and the number of these in each of the branches. As a result, there is a standard impedance for each force transducer which depends on the model, the measurement range and finally the required accuracy.

This impedance can be adapted (700, 1000, 5000 Ω) for certain applications: need for low consumption (e.g. battery operation, amplifier 4 ... 20mA 2-wire) or the need to limit heat dissipation (Exi certified transducers (intrinsic safety), small transducers).
