The Load cell 2 Click Board™ is a weight measurement click that utilizes a load cell element, in order to precisely measure the weight of an object. The Load Cell 2 Click can be used with the strain gauge type of load cells with external differential reference voltage range from 0.1V to 5V. The strain gauge load cell is typically a circuit made of four strain gauges, connected in the Wheatstone bridge configuration. Very small voltage changes need to be accurately detected and converted into a digital form. The Load Cell 2 Click is based around the NAU7802, which is a 24-bit analog-to-digital converter, operated via a simple I2C command, from Nuvoton. This sensor has many features that make it a perfect solution for small designs. One of these features is certainly its high level of integration that allows a minimal number of external components.
Load Cell 2 Click is supported by a mikroSDK compliant library, which includes functions that simplify software development. This Click board™ comes as a fully tested product, ready to be used on a system equipped with the mikroBUS™ socket.
