From Wikipedia, the guardec encyclopedia. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. OhmRef will allow up to 8 resistors to be compared at a time. Electrical meters Bridge circuits Measuring instruments English inventions Impedance measurements. 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.

Because the sources have low impedances, the high guards can be connected directly to the source outputs.

By using a guarded scanner and two sources to form a guarded resistance bridge, measurements from K W to 10G W can be made with excellent accuracy.

The Kelvin bridge was specially adapted from the Wheatstone bridge for measuring very low resistances. Breathalyzer Carbon dioxide sensor Carbon monoxide detector Catalytic bead sensor Chemical field-effect transistor Electrochemical gas sensor Electrolyte—insulator—semiconductor guaredd Electronic nose Fluorescent chloride sensors Holographic sensor Hydrocarbon dew point analyzer Hydrogen sensor Hydrogen sulfide sensor Infrared point sensor Ion selective electrode Microwave chemistry sensor Nitrogen oxide sensor Nondispersive infrared sensor Olfactometer Optode Oxygen sensor Pellistor pH glass electrode Potentiometric sensor Redox electrode Smoke detector Zinc oxide nanorod sensor.


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. Adjusting the source outputs to set the high impedance side of the bridge circuit to zero volts reduces errors caused bridbe meter circuit loading. The standard low thermal scanner has leakages of about 10 12 W. Views Read Edit View history.

Retrieved from ” https: This is done whratstone using two voltage sources for two arms of the bridge as shown in the diagram below. A DVM measures the voltage across the bridge and a low thermal scanner is used to switch the resistors in the test. This provides guagded convenient means to set up an make high resistance measurements. Keeping both sides of the bridge at zero volts reduces leakage errors.

First, Kirchhoff’s first law is used to find the currents in junctions B and D:. The desired value of R x is now known to be given as:. Detecting zero current with a galvanometer can be done to extremely high precision.

By using a fully guarded scanner, leakages can be significantly reduced.

The concept was extended to alternating current measurements by James Clerk Maxwell in and further improved by Alan Blumlein around Published in “Engineering Science and Education Journal”, volume 10, no 1, Februarypages 37— At this point, the voltage between the two midpoints B and D will be zero.

The Wheatstone bridge is the fundamental bridge, but there are other modifications that can be made guared measure various kinds of guardde when the fundamental Wheatstone bridge is not suitable. This page wbeatstone last edited on 8 Novemberat 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. Kelvin bridge Wheatstone bridge. To do so, one has to work out the voltage from each potential divider and subtract one from the other.

Applications –

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, etc. The low guard can be connected directly to ground because the sources are always adjusted so that the DMV reads zero. One of the Wheatstone bridge’s initial uses was for the purpose of soils analysis and comparison.


The primary benefit of the circuit is its ability to provide extremely accurate measurements in contrast with something like a simple voltage divider. Schering Bridge Wien bridge. Wjeatstone the other hand, if the resistance of the galvanometer is high enough that I G is negligible, it is possible to compute R x from the three other resistor values and the supply voltage V Sor the supply voltage from all four resistor values.

The equations for this are:. Diode bridge H bridge.

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. The Wheatstone bridge illustrates the concept of a difference measurement, which can be extremely accurate.

This system provides a simple yet effective way to activate both the high and low guard circuits. Different values of resistors can be compared over a wide range with the uncertainty is primarily dependant upon the scaling accuracy of the voltage source used.

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. 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.
