ESP8266: DIY Wifi Kitchen Scale

ESP32 Development Board WiFi+Bluetooth Ultra-Low Power Consumption Dual Cores ESP-32 ESP-32S Board
Integrated antenna and RF balun, power amplifier, low-noise amplifiers, filters, and power management module. The entire solution takes up the least amount of printed circuit board area. This board is used with 2.4 GHz dual-mode Wi-Fi and Bluetooth chips by TSMC 40nm low power technology, power and RF properties best, which is safe, reliable, and scalable to a variety of applications.

This week I finally received all the necessary pieces to build a internet connected kitchen scale. The ingredients are: a load cell (Wikipedia), a high resolution ADC (HX711) and of course a ESP8266 based NodeMCU V1.0 module. For the moment I’m not logging the data coming from the scale to the internet but I rather display it on one of my beloved SSD1306 I2C 128×64 pixel OLED display.
This load cell is specified for a range of 1kg so that’s where it is most accurate. And comparing the data to my commercial scale shows rather good accuracy!
