Getting Started with Load Cells
Have you ever wanted to know the weight of something? How about knowing the change in weight over time? Do you want your project to sense the presence of something by measuring strain or a load on some surface. If so, you’re in the right place. This tutorial is here to help you get started in the world of load cells and their variants.
One of many kinds of load cells.
Before jumping into load cells and all of their awesomeness, we suggest you familiarize yourself with some basic concepts if you haven’t already:
- Voltage, Current, Resistance, and Ohm’s Law
- Series and Parallel Circuits
- Voltage Dividers
