This is a breakout for the ADS1231, which is perfect to measure weight, force, tension and compression. Can be used to create your own (kitchen) scale. 24 bit ADC means a very high accuracy (depending on the load cell).
The ADS1231 Breakout is a complete solution for high-precision, high-resolution load cell measurement. Implemented with the ADS1231 IC from Texas Instruments, the module contains all the circuitry required to read a load cell. It includes an integrated amplifier, a noise-filtering circuit and a high-resolution ADC converter. It is ideal for applications where measurement of force, mass, tension or compression is needed.
The module offers an SPI interface suitable for connection to a microcontroller using a low number of pins.
We built this to offer a simple way to get started with accurate measuring using load cells.
On Github, you can find our example code for the Arduino. It provides you with a working weight scale example as well as a simple reading app.
