Micropython driver for the HX711 24-Bit Analog-to-Digital Converter

Latest version supports:

  • retrieving data from the channel 'A' with gain 128 and 64, the channel 'B' with gain 32 in a raw form and a form converted from the two's complement.
  • sending "power off" sequence to switch device to the power-saving mode.
  • sending "power on" sequence with the gain saved before the "power off".
  • checking if the device is ready for the data retrieval.

Example for the ESP8266:

D_OUT pin is connected to the GPIO 5
PD_SCK pin is connected to the GPIO 4
Using internal HX711 oscillator, so ESP8266's frequency is set to 160000000

>>> from machine import freq
>>> freq(160000000)
>>> from hx711 import HX711
>>> driver = HX711(d_out=5, pd_sck=4)
>>> driver
HX711 on channel A, gain=128
>>> driver.read()
>>> driver.channel=HX711.CHANNEL_A_64
>>> driver.channel
('A', 64)
>>> driver.read()
>>> driver.power_off()
