  • Any way this could be used with just one of the single strain gauge load sensors (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10245)? I’d like to put two sets of four of these in a rectangle and independently measure the forces to detect weight shifts. Getting the $56 full bridge load cells gets real expensive at qty. 8 though. Perhaps completing the bridge somehow with static resistors. Or do these need to be real fancy precision resistors?

  • If one had access to a machine shop (i.e. mill, lathe), could this be modified to read tension? I.e. have you ever opened one of these up and looked at the insides? It looks like the ‘top’ is probably a really thin web, and perhaps it would be drilled and tapped if they left enough meat on it.

  • Necropost, sorry, but I’m having a similar problem. Anyone solve it, with more detail?

  • What power supply are you using? Are you using the example code from the design website?

No public wish lists :(
