HX711 Weight Measurement using Arduino

 * Load Cell HX711 Module Interface with Arduino to measure weight in Kgs
 Arduino 
 pin 
 2 -> HX711 CLK
 3 -> DOUT
 5V -> VCC
 GND -> GND
 
 Most any pin on the Arduino Uno will be compatible with DOUT/CLK.
 The HX711 board can be powered from 2.7V to 5V so the Arduino 5V power should be fine.
