Building a Scale from Scratch

Course: ME102

Year: 2020

Purpose: Learn to build a scale using knowledge from Statics class

This scale was built by learning a variety of skills including:

  • Soldering

  • Coding Arduino IDE

  • Producing "noise-free-resolution code"

  • Using potentiometers

  • Applying wheatstone bridges

  • Load cell building


First, pins were soldered to the Arduino mini board and HX711 board. On the breadboard, the boards were attached to a potentiometer. The set up was then attached to a load cell. Arduino code was optimized to be noise-free and calibrated.
