Bump.... any new ideas with this one? I'm still banging my head against a wall. Thanks.
and in fact how many industrial application work
So i would need cells on either side of each idler and try and write code that can compute the overall weight of the package based on a minimum of four load cells and then spit out a single number? Is this what you had in mind?
Doable I guess for a flat conveyor, but mine has side rollers to prevent anything falling off. Therefore i'd need a minimum of 12 load cells to do this.
