SHUNT RESISTANCE CALCULATOR
Binsfeld’s Shunt Resistance calculator correlates a resistance to a simulated strain level for a given strain gage. It provides a fast, easy way to calculate how large of a resistor to place on an arm of a strain gage sensor in order to simulate a desired strain, which is especially important for shunt calibration. Equations are dependent on units and listed below. Use the calculator that corresponds to your desired units of measurement. For more information on shunt calibration of a strain-gage based telemetry system, see page 33 of the TorqueTrak 10K users guide.
