Hi

Thank you for your post.

It is possible to connect a load cell to a TC-08. We have done this successfully here. You need to ensure that the cell output does not exceed the input voltage range of the TC-08, and you will probably need to supply external power to the cell.

You set the TC-08 to read in voltage rather than temperature, you can then scale the result.

Hope this helps

Best Regards
