Content for INA125


The INA125 is a low power, high accuracy instrumentation amplifier with a precision voltage reference. It provides complete bridge excitation and precision differential-input amplification on a single integrated circuit. A single external resistor sets any gain from 4 to 10,000. The INA125 is laser-trimmed for low offset voltage (250µV), low offset drift (2µV/°C), and high common-mode rejection (100dB at G = 100). It operates on single (+2.7V to +36V) or dual (±1.35V to ±18V) supplies. The voltage reference is externally adjustable with pinselectable voltages of 2.5V, 5V, or 10V, allowing use with a variety of transducers. The reference voltage is accurate to ±0.5% (max) with ±35ppm/°C drift (max). Sleep mode allows shutdown and duty cycle operation to save power.

Arduino Load Cell / Scale

“My goal was to create a programmable scale for weighing objects, parts counting, even directing product flow on a conveyor system. I needed a load cell, a Arduino, and an amplifier.”
