PASCO Principle of Operation:

The PASCO force sensors employ four strain gauges epoxied to a binocular dual-beam made from annealed aluminum. The strain gauges are wired to form a full-bridge circuit that is driven by a constant voltage source. 

The voltage across the bridge circuit is proportional to the applied force.
