Fixed, Adjustable and Combination Bondable Resistors
There are a variety of fixed, adjustable and combination bondable resistors for use in many applications where precise resistance is required. Appropriate patterns are available in both low and high temperature-coefficient-of-resistance types. The widest use is in transducer bridge circuits to compensate for small temperature-induced errors and to adjust bridge-balance output.
All resistor patterns should be bonded to the mounting surface before adjustment or use. Prepare the specimen surface and install the resistor using standard strain gage materials and techniques. Install leadwires and solder to the attachment tabs with an appropriate solder.
