-We use a single point/beam load cell, because the force can be applied anywhere on the platform ([[here for example on a surface of 200x200 mm|https://www.bosche.eu/en/scale-components/load-cells/single-point-load-cell/miniature-load-cell-h07a]].+We use a single point/beam load cell, because the force can be applied anywhere on the platform ([[https://www.bosche.eu/en/scale-components/load-cells/single-point-load-cell/miniature-load-cell-h07a|here for example on a surface of 200x200 mm]]).

 +===== Future Improvements ===== 
 +==== Temperature Measurements ==== 
 +Currently done by the ADC (ADS1220), but non-ideal due to self-heating during constant acquisition. Therefore it is better to install an external temperature sensor (ideally measuring outside the case, can be surrounded by heat shrink around the load cell cable).
