HBM | Fri, 6 Dec 2013
The signals of strain-gauge transducers are very small. In consequence, error signals can even exceed the measuring signal amplitudes and therefore must be suppressed by sophisticated measuring circuits. This white paper from Manfred Kreuzer of HBM discusses the problems and solutions for high resolution, high stability and efficient suppression and damping of error signals and unwanted dynamic signals, as well as describing the absolute physical limits for the resolution of strain-gauge ...
