I am trying to set up a single 50kg 3 wire strain gauge (from
Amazon) to a HX711 (also from Amazon). I’d like to only use one of these gauges as I do not require the extra output. I have tried to build the other side of the bridge using 2 1K ohm resistors. You can see my attempt from either the attached Fritzing diagram or schemata. I have also attached a picture of how I have physically wired everything.
Currently I am not getting any reading from this setup and I am trying to understand what is either incomplete or wrong. Any help would be appreciated.
I am very new to all of this.
Thanks in advance.
