There are three types of bridge configurations: quarter-bridge, half-bridge, and full-bridge. The number of active element legs in the Wheatstone bridge determines the kind of bridge configuration.

Configuration Number of Active Elements
Quarter-bridge 1
Half-bridge 2
Full-bridge 4

Strain gages use variations of these bridge configurations.
