Igaging scales capacitor fix for jumping values
#1
Since I've tried everything else (cables, isolation, etc)
I'm down to this lol.  Not sure of the exact location and sizing though if someone could give me some guidance?  Also I have some .47 uF capacitors on hand not sure if that  would be ok for this ?

Thanks in advance!

My Shars scales had VDD and GND conveniently marked on the read head circuit board, so maybe the iGaging heads do too. I used an ohmmeter to find a more convenient spot to connect that leg of the cap on mine, though. An ohmmeter is your friend in this.

Thanks. Will .47 uF ones work as well or do I need a specific rating? And it just goes from Vdd to ground so that she voltage to ground ?

As long as they are small ceramic capacitors 0.47uf should be fine. I just had some 0.1uf on hand. Power to ground is what you want. Look at https://forum.yuriystoys.com/showthread.php?tid=129.

Thanks!  Looks like doing the tape trick on each scale end, plus ferrite  on the lines, and plugging into a different circuit have so far calmed it down but its only a matter of time before something goes dirty on that circuit and I'm back in the crap again so putting these on as a preventative measure seems like a good idea to me.
