Writing Data From a 100 kg S-type Load Cell

Postby MTUSCD58 » Mon Oct 31, 2016 11:58 am

I am currently trying to write the data from a 100 kg S-type load cell connected to a a 1046 4 input bridge. I have the load cell hooked up to the 0 channel. When i run the example Bridge code i am getting values.

What i don't know how to do is write the data to a csv file over time. I'm looking at using a gain of 8 and collecting data over approximately 10 seconds. I have very limited coding experience.

Any help or guidance would be much appreciated

We have a guide on data logging here. This example is logging data from a thermocouple board, but the sort of program you write will be very similar; just check the API documentation and change out all TemperatureSensor functions with the appropriate Bridge functions.
