We want to use strain gauges to measure the stress on an object. In order to read the measurements we thought of using the 1046 PhidgetBridge 4-Input
However, it is not clear to us whether we can connect the strain gauge (which doesn't incorporate any wheatstone bridge) directly to the 1046 PhidgetBridge or whether we need a wheatstone bridge or similar in between.
1. Can we connect a strain gauge directly to the 1046 PhidgetBridge 4-Input?
2. Otherwise, would it work with a Voltage Divider (such as 1121
) in between?
3. Otherwise, what do we need to put there?
