## 3.8 | Shunt Calibration

1.
An electrical signal equivalent to that produced by a known
load can be obtained by activating the Shunt Calibration
function.
The Shunt Calibration function is achieved by connecting
a high-precision resistor of known value, in parallel (shunt)
with one arm of the strain gage Wheatstone bridge. The
connection is made by a solid-state switch, which will be
activated by the Shunt Cal ON button.
In the Summing In-Line Amplifier, a fixed resistor with re-
sistance of 61900 Ohms is used as the shunt resistor. The
output of the Summing In-Line Amplifier during Shunt Cal
ON depends on the bridge resistance and sensitivity of the
sensor connected to the amplifier.
When a Sensor with the 350 Ohm Bridge resistance and
2.0mV/V sensitivity is connected to the amplifier, the
output of the amplifier will saturate to ~70% of full scale
during the shunt calibration.

Output of the Summing In-Line Amplifier under shunt
calibration for any other values of the bridge resistance and
sensitivity can be calculated using this equation:
Shunt Cal On Output = (0.000004286* Bridge Resistance) *100
Example:
Consider Sensor with Bridge resistance of 700 Ohm & Sensitivity 10mV/V
Shunt Cal On Output = 0.000004286 * 700*100 = 28.2% of Full Scale = 2.82V
