Strain Gauge Load Cell - 4 Wires - 20Kg
PID: 4543

Hi, I was wondering if you guys stocked any ADC for use with your Load Cells.

Thanks and Keep up the Great Work !!

We have several general purpose ADCs here:

They are not specialized for load cell usage though. So you would need to also take care of excitation voltage and other aspects of the wheatstone bridge for reading back the value.

Can this handle a strain gauge? Like the attached Vishay one, as a single item?

@scotch1 Same comment above applies to that as well.
