Other Parts Discussed in Thread: ADS1235, ADS1230, ADS1231, ADS124S06,
I'm going to use ads131m08 for reading 8 load cells in my application. I want to use this IC due to its ability to read 8 channels simultaneously.
Load cell specification:
Rated Output: 2mV/V
Bridge Resistance: 700 Ohm
There are a couple of questions:
1-Is Ads131m08 suitable for reading the Wheatstone bridge(load cell)?
2-I couldn't find the ads131m08 voltage reference max voltage. is it 1.2V or it could be 3.9V?
3-What is your recommendation for excitation voltage(max can be 5V) and the reference voltage. Can I have 5V for excitation and 1.2V for reference voltage?
