Balances and interfaces have for a long time tried to find a common language for talking to each other. A few systems found this and offered a balance adapter that works with your regular data logging software. Typically measuring mass over time suits monitoring transpiration and chemical reactions where a gas is evolved.
I’ve rated these sensors but your assessment will be different. I give a score, out of five, for the sensor’s intrigue, interest, and learning potential. I also give a score for how often a science department might use it.
