Can I use your work for BRAKE PEDAL with a 50 kg loadcell like this : https://www.gotronic.fr/art-capteur-de-force-50-kg-czl635-50-17601.htm


As long as the loadcell fits.

Thanks, the loadcell i give in the link is compatible ? (https://www.gotronic.fr/art-capteur-de-force-50-kg-czl635-50-17601.htm)

I think you need to modify the CAD of the sensor rack.

Ok but your arduino code and my loadcell are compatible ? thanks

You need to adjust the dead zone/threshold range on your own.

Thanks for your help :)

I will make my project and ask you if I have an issue. I hope you help me.

Hello, I have an issue can you help me please ?

The loadcell don't work, the joystick is detected but when I apply pressure on my 50kg loadcell, the Z axis no work

look this : http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2018/47/2/1542735423-presse-papiers-1.png

I have the solder like your photo : https://raw.githubusercontent.com/zhyma/force_sensing_handbrake/master/wire.jpg

the loadcell https://www.gotronic.fr/art-capteur-de-force-50-kg-czl635-50-17601.htm

I think you need to flash some SPI communicating code (maybe it's called i2c_scanner or something) to your Arduino first to check whether the loadcell and it's driver is working properly.

Thank you for this thing! Thumbs up to you!

thanks for this tutorial

But i don't find this piece :

Rod. Φ5×60mm stainless steel round rod with M3 thread in one end

Please give me a link


I bought that on Taobao. I couldn't find a counterpart on eBay either. That's why there is no link for it.

Hi m8,

would you please let us know how to modify the PCB in order to get a higher report rate ? Or it wont make much difference if we dont choose to modify the PCB ?
