Description

The Crowtail-Weight Sensor uses 24-bit high-precision A / D converter chip HX711, is a high-precision electronic design, with two analog channel input, the internal integrated 128-fold gain programmable Amplifier, the pressure signal into analog voltage signal after the AD module to enlarge to digital signals. The input circuit can be configured to provide bridged bridge-type (such as pressure, weighing) sensor mode, is an ideal high-precision, low-cost sampling front-end module; module output four lines,

Specification

  • Weighing pan size: 10cm × 7cm.
  • Operating voltage: 5V.
  • Maximum range: 5Kg.
  • Total height (including pillars): 3.5cm.

Usage

This demo is going to show you how to read weight information from this Crowtail-Weight Sensor.

1.Hardware Connection
The Crowtail-Weight Sensor is connecting to I2C port of Crowtail - Base Shield.

2.Download the HTU21D Humidity&Temperature Sensor Library. Unzip and put it in the libraries file of Arduino IDE by the path: ..File/arduino IDE/Arduino/library/SparkFunHTU21D. You can also copy the following program to Arduino IDE and upload to your Arduino/Crowduino.

3.Open “SparkFunHTU21D” example:


#include <Wire.h>
#include "SparkFunHTU21D.h"

//Create an instance of the object
HTU21D myHumidity;

void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
  Serial.println("HTU21D Example!");

  myHumidity.begin();
}

void loop()
{
  float humd = myHumidity.readHumidity();
  float temp = myHumidity.readTemperature();

  Serial.print("Time:");
  Serial.print(millis());
  Serial.print(" Temperature:");
  Serial.print(temp, 1);
  Serial.print("C");
  Serial.print(" Humidity:");
  Serial.print(humd, 1);
  Serial.print("%");

  Serial.println();
  delay(1000);
}

4.Upload it into your Arduino board and open the serial monitor to observe the temperature and relative humidity information of the environment.
