Connecting a Load cell

YourDyno supports any load cell.


Here is how to connect a YourDyno standard load cell:

If you have your own load cell, make sure it does not have any amplifier built in, it should be completely analog. The plug is clearly marked with 5V, 0V, Signal + and -. In case you mess up the + and -, then calibration will fix that. In general you will not destroy anything my connecting the load cell wrongly, but take care to understand what goes where to get the most accurate readings. 

Some load cells have 6 wires, not 4. In that case there are 2 + wires and 2 – wires. Just connect them into 2 pairs.  

Here is how to connect your own load cell in the previous versions of YourDyno.


The 4 pin connector is marked with 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Pin 2 is Ground and pin 3 is 5V power. Pins 1 and 4 are signal. S+ and S- are interchangeable, calibration with take care of the polarity.
