This is my first post and I am a little bit confused about one thing. I would need to do the following project: have about 5-6 load cells to be connected to a microcontroller. I am not sure if there is a way to connect multiple load cells to the same arduino. I would need each load cell to act individually, so I would need an individual result from all each load cell.
I believe I would need to connect 1 load cell to 1 load cell amp and then connect the load cell amp to the Arduino and repeat this process 5-6 times (for each load cell that I need)
I'm not sure if this is possible using one Arduino or I would need 1 Arduino for each individual load cell.
The main idea of the project is to have a load cell to be placed under different kitchen supplies (1 load cell to continuously check the weight of Flower, another one to check for bread, another to check for paprika, and so on)
After this is read from the sensors, I need to write the weight of each item in a table / DB every 30 minutes.
Also, if this can be done with another board, like a microcontroller (Raspberry Pi) I'm open to that.
