I can try and I like doing it, this is why I am still here but I expect something for that. Nothing special, just feedback - ok, thank you or sorry I need something differend.

Few days ago we discussed about loadcell without any feedback.

Because you shared very little, like usually, I do not know what a method of this library you used and also how much different those values are.

You probably need a static load for the load cell. Then try to set a gain, offset and scale for approx expected values.

#include "mbed.h"
#include "HX711.h"
HX711 scale(PB_11, PB_10);
Serial pc(USBTX, USBRX); // USB Serial Terminal
float calibration_factor = -7050; //-7050 worked for my 440lb max scale setup
int averageSamples = 100;
int main(void)
{
pc.baud(115200);
pc.printf("Starting Scale");
pc.printf("Starting Scale");
pc.printf("HX711 calibration sketch");
pc.printf("Remove all weight from scale");
pc.printf("After readings begin, place known weight on scale");
pc.printf("Press + or a to increase calibration factor");
pc.printf("Press - or z to decrease calibration factor");
scale.setScale(0);
scale.tare(); //Reset the scale to 0
long zero_factor = scale.averageValue(averageSamples); //Get a baseline reading
pc.printf("Zero factor: %.4f\n" , zero_factor); //This can be used to remove the need to tare the scale. Useful in permanent scale projects.
while (true) {
scale.setScale(calibration_factor); //Adjust to this calibration factor
float weight = scale.getGram();
//float raw = scaleRaw.read();
pc.printf("Reading: %.2f\n", weight);
//pc.printf("Raw Value: %.7f\n", raw);
pc.printf(" calibration_factor: %.2f\n", calibration_factor);
if(pc.readable()) {
char temp = pc.getc();
if(temp == '+' || temp == 'a')
calibration_factor += 10;
else if(temp == '-' || temp == 'z')
calibration_factor -= 10;
}
}
}

This is the output I am getting without putting any weight :-

As you can see the reading value keep on changing even i didn’t put any weight on the loadcell.

Ok, be so kind make a test please. I would like to see raw data via another library. Try the library what I mentioned in your second topic with this code.

#include "mbed.h"
#include "HX711.h"
DigitalOut led1(LED1);
HX711 hx711(3.2f, PB_10, PB_11, 32); // avdd in Volts, sck pin, dout pin, gain
Ticker ticker;
volatile bool tick = false;
void onTick(){ tick = true;}
int main()
{
printf("Starting...\r\n");
ticker.attach_us(onTick, 500 * 1000); // 500ms
hx711.powerUp();
while (true) {
if (tick) {
tick = false;
led1 = !led1;
if (hx711.isReady()) {
float mV = hx711.read(); // read voltage in mV
printf("hx711 voltage \t= %fmV\r\n", mV);
}
}
}
}

@JohnnyK As mentioned I tried that code and getting this output :-

Strange the result with 3.2 was stabile and with 5 seems to be broken.

Do not use the gain 32 if you do not reconnect wires to channel B on HX711.

I ordered my own load cell with HX711 because I was also interested about this. So please give a time, it will be eazy when I will have it in my hands.

@JohnnyK Exactly the output is not stabilized, so it’s became difficult to calibrate.

I really appreciate your efforts to help me with this problem. I’ll be waiting for your response and till the time I will also try to find some alternative solutions.

Hi @JohnnyK, I read the datasheet and try the excitation voltage with 9V and 12V but the loadcell output have more unstabilized output.
I think 5V only can have accurate reading, but now I am unable to get it.

I really appreciate your effort that you put for me whenever I am facing problem.
Still I am not getting the expected results. I tried so many times.
Could please help me on this and kindly tell me if any alternative solutions is there.
