The goal is to measure the weight of two or more objects using a set of two load cells (In the picture it uses 4, but for this case, I think two can do the job). As we may know, a load cell needs a hx711 in order to change analog into digital. This picture is using a combinator in order to group the signals of the load cells into one output that goes to the hx711. My problem is that I am not sure how to track two or more different objects' weight only using one hx711. Would this be entirely possible, or I must use a combinator and a hx711 per two load cells? If so, is there another alternative to using the hx711?
Thank you very much for your time and help.
