Many force transducers like this one are made up of Wheatstone bridges and they have sensitivity which relates the force/stimulus change to the voltage change. This small voltage change then is amplified by an instrumentation amplifier.
But I hear sometimes a phrase called "temperature compensation". Is it something done by a circuit in the amplifier or done mechanically in the transducer? I read couple of articles I have some information but I'm not sure I got it what it is all about. The reason is some of people I know talk things like "is the force transducer temperature compensated?" I'm not sure if they know what they talk about so I was trying to learn the meaning of it.
Below figure is from a text:
Is it nonsense to say: "Is this strain gauge(or a Wheatstone bridge sensor) temperature compensated"?
Can compensation only be done by a circuitry in the amplifier stage(not in sensor/Wheatstone/force transducer stage) which both sense the temperature and regulates the sensitivity? How is it done?
