Dear friends I'm an informatic ing. but completly new to the arduino platform. I'm interested to realize a check weigher. The target is to realize a machne that value the weight of a product and if it's in the right range push it in a direction, if its' outside the range push it in another direction.
inspired to the industrial check weigher https://www.google.it/search?q=check+weigher&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hl=it&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=EHYvUJbFBqbP4QTr4oH4Cw&biw=1024&bih=506&sei=E3YvULeQJ but more more easy
my idea is a sensor that check the weight and send the value tu arduino, if the value is inside a range a small electric motor move the product outside the wheight platform.
my product are 10g / 20g the i think that te problem is the hight precision of the sensor (I need 0.1 - 0.5g) I think that I need: -Arduino - Scale sensor - Amplifier signal - 2 Electric motor
Do you think that arduino can make this? Can you suggest me how to begin? thanks for all Fabio
