    Re: HX711 mV/V information needed

    Hi,

    So, how about measuring 100kgs with a 30kgs Load cell?
    Now it's 100kg ... confusing.

    My answer: Don't do it. If a load cell is specified for 30kg then use it for 30kg max.
    If overload is specified to be 200% ... this means 60kg, then the sensor will withstand this mechanically, but this is out of the specified operating area and you have to expect additional measurement errors.

    Question: If a bungee rope is specified for 60kg, but your weight is 90kg ... would you use it?

    Its not me but the client who wants to overload the Load Cell.

    Of course not.
