    I need help with this load cell from sparkfun, here are the only details given https://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Sensors/loadsensor.pdf

    This load cell is a half-bridge so i connected up 2 load cells to an in-amplifier. It says that the capacity of one load cell is 40-50kg but when i connect up 2 load cells the capacity should go up to 80-100kg. However, i only managed to get a maximum of 40kg with 2 load cells.
    Sorry i am quite new with this! Please help :confused:
