Has anyone connected an FX1901 force sensor to a Raspberry Pi (with a HX711)? Is this possible? I am pretty new to this topic and didn't find sufficient explanation.

    \$\begingroup\$ Since the Pi part is done ( tutorials-raspberrypi.com/… ) the only question is about the load cell. \$\endgroup\$ – crj11 Mar 1 at 16:27
  • \$\begingroup\$ SWipf - Welcome :-) (a) Please edit the question and add a link to the datasheet for your specific sensor (is it this one or a different one?). (b) How far have you got already? Did you read the datasheet for your specific sensor? What is the specific problem? As kindly pointed out in a comment by crj11, there are already tutorials to help you get started. \$\endgroup\$ – SamGibson Mar 1 at 17:07
  • \$\begingroup\$ Hi guys, I connected the FX1901 force sensor (te.com/commerce/DocumentDelivery/…) to a sparkfun HX711. Thereby I used a pi tutorial for the same procedure but with an different load cell instead (tutorials-raspberrypi.com/…) . I dont understand fully why this does not work for the fx1901. The programm output is always 0, no matter if I put pressure on the sensor or not. You can find my set up here: imgur.com/a/QVKZLqX . \$\endgroup\$ – SWipf Mar 4 at 9:11
