Issues in Reading RatesThe load cell is easy to use.
But, there is an issue in choosing the number of reading per second. For example, using 0.1 reading per sec is the same rate as 10 reading per sec. Which is very inconvenient and so the maximum time to record the data is 1 hour and 20 mins only.
In addition, the load cell came with a CD that is supposed to include the software that read it. But, the software did not run.
