Hi Langue, it's been a while. Nice work on the calibration code. How would you go about writing the new calibration factor to the EEPROM permanently without using the Arduino IDE.? I've had a bit of a fiddle and everything works fine until the openscale is disconnected, then it starts up with the or...

Thanks Langue. At this point I've had to make some priority decisions, therefore I've gone back to working on my overall software solution. I'm currently writing a help system which is taking waaaay.... too long, (2 months so far) and I'm about 1/3rd of the way through it!!! When that is finalized, ...

Thanks Languer. If I wanted to use an external clock with your code, how would the code know where the clock source comes from? I imagine it comes from defining "CLK" but I haven't read any other info that shows hows it's done. I don't expect you to "spoon feed" me the solution, but can you point me...

I confirm that changing the code to: #define DOUT 2 #define CLK 3 Now it works, and the code posted above by Languer now shows a valid reading. So, I went back and looked at some other code examples that I downloaded that didn't work either, and the SAME error was there. Amazing!! The link to the co...

Thanks Languer, I couldn't get that code to work - all I get is zero's. However, I was able to get very close to what I need by editing some firmware code (Nathan Seidle 2014, using the bogde library). I was able to remove all the formatting, then I multiplied currentReading by 100 to convert kg rea...

Ok, so just testing.

Posted a new topic under Product Questions but it does not show.

Is there some sort of vetting by admins for new forum users?

Hi guys, my first post here and apologies if I ask too many questions and get a few things wrong. 8-) I've got the Openscale connected to a load cell, done the basic setup and it all seems to be working well enough. However, I'd like to be able to format the output data my way. There doesn't seem to...
