PICOSTRAIN - Innovative Solution for Measuring Resistor Bridges
The measurement of electrical resistance is transformed to time measurement by measuring the discharging time. Patented methods that are used for driving the resistor bridge and preparation of the measurement data enable an performance and accuracy that is comparable to high-end 24-Bit A/D-converters. Where the offset- and gaindrift as well as the adjustment possiblities is concerned PICOSTRAIN will even beat them. Therefore PICOSTRAIN products are perfectly suited for measering strain gages. At last one item makes PICOSTRAIN unbeatable: The very low current consuption of the whole sensor-converter-system. The outcome of this for battery driven systems, particularly in wireless strain gage applications is a significantly extended operation time.
