Digital Weighing Machine
Weighing machine is very useful product. It helps us in checking our weight aswell as other product’s weight. Moreover, Weighing machine are used in manyindustrial and commercial applications. Without a weight machine it is not possibleto know the exact mass of anything. There are two types of weighing measuringsystem called analog weighing machine and digital weighing machine. The analogweighing system is very erroneous. In digital weighing machine, we don’t have toface any problem. Only viewing the display we come to know the exact weight of the product.In digital weighing machine, we interface with the digital world. In our project, wecome to know the basic principle of digital weighing machine and know how tomake a digital weight machine easily and cheaply. This project basically helps usto compete with Manufacturer Company of digital weighing machine in future.
Component used in our project
To do the project we had to collect some components. They are given below-
Load Cell
Stand of iron to set up Load Cell
Microcontroller( PIC16F877A)
Op-Amp (AD620 & LM358)
Bread Board, Printed circuit Board(PCB)
7-segment display
Three power supply
Concomitant: Resistors, Capacitors, Connecting Wires.
MPLAB software to do the code
Brief descriptions of important usable components
Load cell 
: Load cell is used as force measuring component.We collected a load cell of 3KG.As a result in our project weonly could measure till 3 KG. There are four or two straingauges in load cell depending on the capacity of load cell. It
works like a Wheatstone bridge.
Fig: Block diagram of load cell 
When we don’t give any load to it, it remains balanced; there is no flowing of current as well as corresponding voltage.
