A library to drive a HX711 load cell amplifier on a Raspberry Pi
This library allows to drive a HX711 load cess amplifier with a Raspberry Pi. It just provides the capabilities:
- to set channel an gain and
- to read raw values
This package requires RPi.GPIO to be installed in Python 3.
Just install by
pip3 install HX711. A basic usage example is given below:
#!/usr/bin/python3 from hx711 import HX711 try: hx711 = HX711( dout_pin=5, pd_sck_pin=6, channel='A', gain=64 ) hx711.reset() # Before we start, reset the HX711 (not obligate) measures = hx711.get_raw_data(num_measures=3) finally: GPIO.cleanup() # always do a GPIO cleanup in your scripts! print("\n".join(measures))
