Definitions for "Bridge circuit"
Keywords:  null, circuit, rtds, gages, parallel
a circuit consisting of two branches (4 arms arranged in a diamond configuration) across which a meter is connected
An electronic network in which an input voltage is applied across two parallel elements and an output voltage -- to an indicating device -- is taken across two intermediate points on the parallel elements. A bridge circuit is used to determine an unknown resistance. Typically used with strain gages, and RTDs.
Circuit with series-parallel groups of components.
