I am looking for a scale to use for a project. I have scoured and found some options that are mostly for weighing humans and small items as well as some fully integrated systems for inventory management (Which are too expensive).
The items that I need to weigh are approximately 4 feet long. We need to be able to measure up to 40 lbs. at a minimum. Accuracy is not that important, being off by up to 1 lb will not affect this particular project
The plan is to integrate these scales into a shelving systems and have them monitor the weight of the product in each location. We will need to take the measurements from the scale and pass that back into our internal application.
We would consider using load sensors and effectively building our own platform but first want to reach out and see if anyone has seen such an animal.
The secondary option would be to use multiple scales at each end of the shelve using the method show Here. Who knew I would every use the Physics SE.
Lastly if a long scale is not an option and we have to move to the method show on Physics SE then we would like the scales to be as small as possible.
