  • The disc load cell is standing freely on my desk. It is connected via the amplifier board to an Arduino Uno. Through pressing a plate on the load cell I'm applying force on it. I also checked the soldering connections to the pin header on the amplifier board, which are ok. I would be happy if you could give me a hint for the solution. I am writing these from Germany. Preferably I would ask the customer service in writing if possible. Is there a special email address for that or is education@sparkfun.com correct?

  • Hello Sarah,

    Thank you very much for your support. I went through the calibration code but the problem remains. The problem in my case is that the ouput is always "0 lbs" regardless of how much weight I am putting on the sensor. So I can not even calibrate the sensor because the output doesn't change. I measured the two output signals of the wheatstone bridge with a measurment device while putting weight on the sensor. The measurement device shows a change. Is it possible that the IC is defect? If yes, how can I check that?

    Thanks, Ali

  • Hello Sarah,

    I have bought the Load Cell - 200kg(TAS606). Following the instructions of the hookup guide and using red and green as excitation and yellow and white as output, the example sketch is still reading 0 lbs regardless of weight. I would be very glad if you could help me.

    Thanks, Ali

  • I followed the instructions of the hookup guide and used red and green as excitation and yellow and white as output. But the example sketch is still reading 0 lbs regardless of weight, too. Does someone know the solution for this?

No public wish lists :(
