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.

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. On the other hand, if the resistance of the galvanometer is high enough that I G is negligible, it is possible to compute R bridfe from the three other guardee values and the supply voltage V Sor the supply voltage from all four resistor values. Diode bridge H bridge.

At this point, the voltage between the two midpoints B and D will be zero. From Guarrded, the free encyclopedia. Views Read Edit View history.


Leeds & Northrup 4736 Guarded Wheatstone Bridge

Adjusting the source outputs to set the high impedance side of the bridge circuit to zero volts reduces errors caused by meter circuit loading. Kelvin bridge Wheatstone bridge. The Kelvin bridge was specially adapted from the Wheatstone bridge for measuring very low resistances. Detecting zero current with a galvanometer can be done guardwd extremely high precision. 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.

Wheatstone bridge – Wikipedia

The low guard can be connected directly to ground because the sources are always adjusted so that the DMV reads zero. Variations on the Wheatstone bridge can be used to measure capacitanceinductanceimpedance and other quantities, such as the amount of combustible gases in a sample, with an explosimeter.

The primary benefit of the circuit is its ability to provide extremely accurate measurements in contrast with something like a simple voltage divider.

Different values of resistors can be compared over a wide range with the uncertainty guardev primarily dependant upon the scaling accuracy of the voltage source used. Published in “Engineering Science and Education Journal”, volume 10, no 1, Februarypages 37— In a normal arrangement the leakage currents would cause errors of about 1 ppm at the 1 M W and ppm at M W.

Geophone Hydrophone Microphone Seismometer. The standard low thermal scanner has leakages of about 10 12 W. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.

To do so, one has to work out the voltage from each potential bfidge and subtract one from the other. Because the sources have low impedances, the high guards can be connected directly to the source outputs.

Some of the modifications are:. Keeping both sides of the bridge at zero volts reduces leakage errors.

The Wheatstone bridge illustrates the concept of a difference measurement, which can be extremely accurate. A DVM measures the voltage across the bridge and a low thermal scanner is used to switch the resistors in the test. One of the Wheatstone bridge’s initial uses was for the purpose of soils analysis and comparison.

First, Kirchhoff’s first law is used to find the currents in junctions B and D:.
