£110.16 £91.80

This board is needed to measure the output from a load cell. You can connect up to four load cells or strain gauges.


The PhidgetBridge lets you connect up to 4 un-amplified Wheatstone bridges, such as:

  • Strain gauges
  • Compression load cells
  • Pressure sensors/Barometers
  • Piezoresistive accelerometers
  • Magnetoresistive sensors (Compasses)

The data rate and gain values can be configured in software.
