Retrieved from ” https: Geophone Hydrophone Microphone Seismometer. The primary benefit of the circuit is its ability to provide extremely accurate measurements in contrast with something like a simple voltage divider.
In many cases, the significance of measuring the unknown resistance is related to measuring the impact of some physical phenomenon such as force, temperature, pressure, wheahstone.
Diode bridge H bridge.
Some of the modifications are:. A Wheatstone bridge is an electrical circuit used to measure an unknown electrical resistance by balancing two legs of a bridge circuitone leg of which includes the unknown component. OhmRef will allow up to 8 resistors guraded be compared at a time.
The concept was extended to alternating current measurements by James Clerk Maxwell in and further improved by Alan Blumlein around A DVM measures the voltage across the bridge and a low thermal scanner is used to switch the resistors in the test.
Kelvin bridge Wheatstone bridge. The Kelvin bridge was specially adapted from the Wheatstone bridge for measuring wheeatstone low resistances. In a normal arrangement the leakage currents would cause errors of about 1 ppm at the guardwd M W and ppm at M W.

This provides a convenient means to set up an make high resistance measurements. Voltage source 1 is adjusted so that the DVM always reads zero, which sets the center point of the two resistors being compared to zero volts.
The standard low thermal scanner has leakages of about 10 12 W. The tare standard is always in the circuit, and the low thermal scanner is used to switch the standard and test resistors into the circuit one at a time.
The Wheatstone bridge is the fundamental bridge, but there are other modifications that can be made to measure various kinds of resistances when the fundamental Wheatstone bridge is not suitable. Variations on the Wheatstone bridge can be used to measure capacitanceinductanceimpedance bdidge other quantities, such as the amount of bridgd gases in a sample, with an explosimeter.
The desired value of R x is now known to be given as:.
Views Read Edit View history. The low guard can be connected directly to ground because the sources are always adjusted so that the DMV reads zero.

Adjusting the source outputs to set the high impedance side of the bridge circuit to zero volts reduces errors caused by meter circuit loading. By using a guarded scanner and two sources to form a guarded resistance bridge, measurements from Guardes W to 10G W can be made with excellent accuracy. The equations for this are:. This setup is frequently used in strain gauge and resistance thermometer measurements, as it is usually faster to read a voltage level off a meter than to adjust a resistance to zero the voltage.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This page was last edited on 8 Novemberat Schering Bridge Wien bridge. By using a fully guarded scanner, leakages can be significantly reduced.
First, Kirchhoff’s first law is used to find the currents in junctions B and D:.

Because the sources have low impedances, the high guards can be connected directly to the source outputs. Published in “Engineering Science and Education Journal”, volume 10, no 1, Februarypages 37— To do so, one has to work out the voltage from each potential divider and subtract one from the other.
