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.

We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
November Five is an Antwerp, Belgium-based, privately owned company. We work end-to-end on all things digital, always looking for new ways to fuse business, design and technology. Just as our software team tries to give back to the community, our hardware team tries to give back as much as they can to the hardware community as well in the form of open source hardware (OSHW). This is why we create development/breakout boards of all the sensors, ICs or any other relevant components we develop our products with so other hardware developers can kickstart their prototypes.
