Description

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.

Getting started

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))
