What is necessary for making strain gage measurements with Campbell Scientific data loggers?
To make strain gage measurements, a terminal input module is needed. It is necessary to match the resistance of the strain gage with the resistance of the terminal input module.
- For a 120 ohm strain gage, use the 4WFBS120.
- For a 350 ohm strain gage, use the 4WFBS350.
- For a 1000 ohm (1 kohm) strain gage, use the 4WFBS1K.
