While typical weigh scales provide one dimension of information, the downward force, the MAXREFDES82# reference design provides both downward force and centre of mass. It does so by collecting responses from four load cells using the MAX11254, a 24-bit, 6-channel analog-to-digital converter (ADC).

This unique configuration, enabled by the highly integrated 24-bit ADC, provides second and third dimensions of information about whatever object presses upon it. The chip’s 64-ksps capability provides real-time operation with accurate measurements of weight and centre of mass up to 780g. The interface requires no special glass or material, making it suitable for industrial environments
