I am using ADS1231 to get values from a load cell,i am using the ADC in following configuration. i am powering the micocontroller and loadcell by 5Volt supply as shown in above image. i am getting the results as expected and everything works fine.
load cell that i am using is 2mV/volt type, and it says in the datasheet that the ADC input range is form -19.5 milivolts to +19.5 milivolts. In my case i am supplying the ADC with only 10 mV.
is there any way to increase the range ?
am i using the full potential of ADC capabilities?
