Description: Memorandum presenting pulse techniques applied to strain gages for increasing the output level and extending the usable range. Bonded and unbonded strain gages which normally operate with exciting potentials between 3.5 and 14 volts operated satisfactorily with 200-volt pulses of 1-microsecond duration and a repetition rate of 350 per second. Results regarding maximum allowable voltages, effective pulse duration, sensitivity, minimum readable signal, effects of cable capacitance and inductance, sensitivity to external noise, and linearity are provided.
