The following products are required in order to use the YWBRIDG1 Yocto Bridge
The YWBRIDG1 Yocto Bridge is a precision ratiometric analog/digital converter to measure over USB the very weak voltage produced by a load cell, as used in weighing scales, or any other type of strain sensor or other sensor with a Wheatstone bridge output.
The measure is performed by a 32 bit A/D with built-in preamplifier and FIR filter, which allows for a sensitiity of a few nV/V. The device includes a built-in temperature sensor, which can be internal or external NTC, to cancel temperature drift inherent to load cells, both in offset and span. The Yocto-Bridge can also apply AC excitation to cancel thermocouple effects, and perform zero tracking for simple applications where the measured signal frequently comes back to zero.
This version includes a single ratiometric inputs. If you intend to build a weighing scale with four load cells, you can use the Yocto-MaxiBridge instead, which includes four ratiometric inputs.
This device can be connected directly to an Ethernet network using a YoctoHub-Ethernet, to a WiFi network using a YoctoHub-Wireless-g, it can even be connected to a GSM network thanks to the YoctoHub-GSM.
USB cables and enclosure to be ordered separately.

Compact USB interface driving five electromagnetic relays capable of switching directly mains powered appliances, up to 1250W per channel.
Small USB module to read very precisely the output of two 4-20mA sensors. The device can convert the current measure to the equivalent physical measure on the fly, and includes a built-in datalogger.
Isolated USB motor controller (ESC) for brushed DC motors 3…18V / 20A, with integrated current, voltage and temperature probes.
That isolated device can decode PWM signals. It can be used as a pulse counter as well.
USB sensor to measure carbon dioxide (CO2) in ambiant air, with built-in datalogger
Isolated 4-20mA generator. This is what you need to control by USB any device featuring a 4-20mA input.
That device can generate two distinct PWM signals using a frequency between 1Hz and 1Mhz.
USB interface allowing to connect up to 6 thermistors, PTC or NTC.
This device features 8 small solid state relays, ideal to drive high-power relays
USB barometric altimeter with integrated data logger
