6 days agoNote that your outputs are outside the linear output range of the INA. The spec. at page 2 in the data sheet says typical from 0.4 V to 3.3-0.9= 2.4 V. The pin 5 can be used to adjust the output to be...
3 weeks agoGood idea, however to create a microcontroller based application that communicates frequently with only 10mA budget could be quite challenging.
3 weeks agoHave you had problems with noise. This can be a problem with small signals.
3 weeks agoNice work. Do you need to constantly re-calibrate the load cell due to 'creep'? I guess this could be done when the patient gets out of the bed?
1 month agoA clever idea indeed!
