PhidgetBridge 4-Input

PhidgetBridge 4-Input

This board is needed to measure the output from a load cell. You can connect up to four load cells or strain gauges.

Note: The 1046_0B is identical to the 1046_0, except that it comes pre-assembled in a plastic shell enclosure and you have the option of which length of USB cable you want to include.

The PhidgetBridge lets you connect up to 4 un-amplified Wheatstone bridges, such as:

  • Strain gauges
  • Compression load cells
  • Pressure sensors/Barometers
  • Piezoresistive accelerometers
  • Magnetoresistive sensors (Compasses)
