I just finished designing my PCB, I printed it and assembled it. Everything seems to be working fine after some tests. However, assembling the load cells and power cables was really complicated and not really clean.
If I were to ask a PCB manufacturer to assemble the PCB, would that mean they would also solder things like the load cells (who are on a load cell amplifier, not on the PCB itself) or would I still have to solder those myself?
If I were to create routes to holes (sorry if I'm not using the correct terminology here) that are connected to my load cells on my PCB would that work?
Or is it impossible because these are not surface mount components but through-hole?
this is the load cell amplifier.
I solder the load cells in the RED, BLK, WHT, GRN, YLW holes on the left. –
