 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi all,
I'm looking for someone to build a little device for me here in the UK.
The device I want making needs to monitor the output from a pair of loadcells or strain gauges, record the results & then download/transmit them to a laptop for graphing in a simple spreadsheet.
Sounds like it shouldn't be difficult but I have absolutely no idea so need someone to do this for me.
Any takers for a bit of paid work?
Look forward to hearing from you.

Really, nobody?
Can't believe what I'm asking for is technically difficult.
Anyone care to comment?

I have no idea why there are no replies.  In case it's because your topic is in the wrong section I'll move to a more appropriate place.

Unless you put the topic here deliberately.  Does the person have to be in the UK?  Is that why this topic is in Local Groups?

Coding Badly, thanks for your help and please move this post to where ever you think is most appropriate.
Does the builder need to be in the UK? mmmm well it would certainly make discussions & posting things back & forth easier but I suppose in principle no it doesn't really matter.

Have you selected an instrumentation amplifier or will you need help with that?  In other words, is it a programming only or programming and electronic design?

record the results

How much data?  Timestamped?  To a removable SD card?  Or is the device to be completely self contained?

then download/transmit them to a laptop

Permanent storage is spreadsheet?  Database?  Text file?

for graphing in a simple spreadsheet.

Spreadsheet you made?  The contractor is expected to make?

Excel?  The Google spreadsheet application?

Look forward to hearing from you.
