Maxim’s MAXREFDES82# features a next generation industrial, smart force sensor. Mounted on a quadrant of load cells channeled into a multi-channel, 24-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC), MAXREFDES82# senses weight and center of mass for objects placed on the platform. The scale provides full-scale responses up to 780g. The user interface provides an active display of center of mass on the platform, as well as total measured weight. In addition to serving as a smart force sensor, the design works very well as a ruggedized touch interface with force sensing. The system consumes less than 50mA during normal operation and features a USB interface for quick evaluation and integration.
The board is designed in a compact form factor for rapid evaluation or installation. Refer to the Details tab for more information on the reference design. Design files and firmware can be downloaded from the Design Resources tab.
