Very good product and I received very good condition
To measure the weight and load of any object we use strain gauges but the problem with using standalone strain gauges is that they are fragile and are easily bent and break if not used in a proper enclosure. This load cell made up of aluminum alloy can measure up to 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.
Accurate measures forces from 0-1kg; load cell specs: 22 cm (8.5 in) wire leads pre-attached. Dimensions 12.7 mm high, 12.7 mm wide, 80 mm long (0.5 in x 0.5 in x 3.15 in). 4 mounting holes, 15 mm spacing on each side. On both holes tapped m4 thread, on the other side, both holes tapped m5 thread.
HX711: This top-of-the-line load cell amplifier mounted on a breakout board pairs perfectly with the load cell to provide fast, accurate force measurements. It measures small changes in the resistance of the strain gauges mounted to the load cell and passes these values directly to any microcontroller (like an Arduino or raspberry pi).
Connection (to HX711): Red to e+; black to e-; green to a+; white to a-
