Where the unknown leg of a bridge is a sensor which presents a resistance that relates to a parameter by a second order polynomial, a negative feedback circuit from the conventional null measurement terminals to a voltage divided point in the balance leg thereof is included to provide a substantially linear relationship between the parameter of the sensor and a ratio including two voltage levels from the feedback circuit. A circuit means for continuously monitoring this ratio of voltages with a counter in recurring cycles for digital display is incorporated with the linearized bridge circuit of this invention in a particular embodiment thereof.
