Load cell sensor resistance strain 1kg.

This weighing Load Cell Sensor (sometimes called a strain gauge) can translate up to 1 kg of pressure (force) into an electrical signal. Each load cell is able to measure the electrical resistance that changes in response to the strain (e.g. pressure or force) applied to the bar.

With this gauge, you will be able to tell just how heavy an object is, if an object’s weight changes over time, or if you simply need to sense the presence of an object by measuring strain or load applied to a surface. This straight bar load cell is made from an aluminium alloy and is capable of reading a capacity of 1KG of weight

It has Four lead wires which can be connected to the HX711 A/D Pressure Sensor.  It is easy to use with a voltage of 5V to produce the output voltage as per the force changes over it.

Installation of the Sensor is also a simple task, you need to fix one end through the screw hole and the other side will be your measuring side, the label indicates the direction of the gravitational force, take note: Not to directly push the white plastic cover part of the sensor in order to avoid damage.

Load cell very flimsy

Two wires fell off almost immediately after it arrived.

Hi there,
