10Kg Load Cell
A load cell is a transducer that is used to create an electrical signal whose magnitude is directly proportional to the force being measured. The various types of load cells include hydraulic load cells, pneumatic load cells, and strain gauge load cells.
This is a standard load cell for measuring weight upto 10 Kg. The output of the load cell is in mili-volts and cannot be directly measured by a micro-controller. So an ADC with high resolution or an instrumentation amplifier is required to make the output of the load cell readable to a micro-controller.
To measure weight and load of any object we use strain gauges but the problem with using standalone strain gauge is that they are fragile and are easily bent and break if not used in proper enclosure. This load cell made up of aluminium alloy can measure upto 10 kg load and outputs in the form of electrical signals proportionally. This sensor will use a HX711 Analog to Digital signal converter, it is easy to use with driving voltage 5-10V and produce the output voltage as per the force changes over it, to read and send the data to the microcontroller or development board you are using as the analog signal from the load cell is too small to be read easily.
