Smart Force Sensor Enhances 3D Interface/Weigh Scale Reference Design

Smart Force Sensor Enhances 3D Interface/Weigh Scale Reference Design
Maxim Integrated Products

As per its maker, using the MAXREFDES82# smart force sensor reference design enables engineers to rapidly evaluate and deploy new human-machine interface (HMI) devices. Contrary to typical weigh scales that provide one dimension of information, downward force, the MAXREFDES82# reference design provides both downward force and center of mass. It does so by collecting responses from four load cells using the MAX11254, a 24-bit, 6-channel analog-to-digital converter (ADC). This configuration, enabled by the 24-bit ADC, provides second and third dimensions of information about whatever object presses upon it. The MAXREFDES82# reference design is available for $99.
