In my Arduino project, I want to combine 8 half-bridge load cells (each has 3 wires: red, black, and white) because I will be weighing irregularly shaped objects and 4 points of contact may not be enough.
I am not planning to make a flat platform on top, just 8 individual load cells raised from the floor, and the object will sit on as many load cells as it would.
I am having a hard time trying to figure out wiring 8 load cells. I understand I may need multiple HX711 load cell amplifiers and combinators. All the help I could find either discusses full-bridge 4-wire load cells or combining 4 load cells to make a bathroom scale.
