Nominal sensitivity

Description

burster load cells are built on the strain gage principle. Usually four or more strain gages are connected together in a Wheatstone bridge arrangement. This type of design means that the sensors do not output an active voltage signal but a small voltage difference across the bridge circuit. For strain gage sensors, the output signal is heavily dependent on the supply voltage. The output signal, and so the nominal sensitivity, is therefore specified in millivolts per Volt of supply voltage (mV/V) at the sensor output. This parameter is sometimes referred to as “sensitivity” for load cells.
