Load Cell 10kg – Straight Bar Weigh Sensor


This straight bar load cell (sometimes called a strain gauge) can translate up to 10KG of pressure (force) into an electrical signal. Load cells are designed to measure a specific force, and ignore other forces being applied. The electrical signal output by the load cell is very small and requires specialized amplification.

Each straight bar load cell is made from an aluminum-alloy and is capable of reading a capacity of 10KG and designed to measure force in one direction. They will often measure force in other directions, but the sensor sensitivity will be different, since parts of the load cell operating under compression are now in tension, and vice versa.

Applicable to electronic scale, price computering scale, electronic platform scale, digital scale; parcel post scale, electronic balance and all varieties of commercial scales by single load cell.

Load Cell Amplifier 24-Bit ADC Weighing Sensor Module HX711


The Load Cell Amplifier and ADC Module is a small breakout board for the HX711 IC that allows you to easily read load cells to measure weight.

By connecting the module to your microcontroller you will be able to read the changes in the resistance of the load cell and with some calibration you’ll be able to get very accurate weight measurements.
