How to Balance a Full-Bridge Strain Gage

Even wonder how to balance 250US gage pattern (nickname: The Windmill) with an E01 resistor? Take a look. The E01 resistor can be bonded near the location of the CEA-XX-250US-350 strain gage and then easily adjusted by cutting the ladder rungs to achieve a zero-output for the Wheatstone bridge.

The CEA-XX-250US-350 is very popular for applications involving shafts in torsion.
