BroodMinder-DIY Beehive Scale is the raw circuit board (does not include load cells) that we use in the ready to use BroodMinder-W2 scale. With these parts you can build your own beehive scale and it will work with all of the standard BroodMinder software. We hope that this circuit board allows many home crafters to create wonderful devices to monitor beehives. Be sure to share your designs with us and we will share them with the world.

We are also offering the BroodMinder weight sensors that we use (the BroodMinder-DIY Beehive Scale circuit board does not include weight sensors) They have proven to be of high quality and appropriate for use in the harsh beehive environment.
Choose the separate beehive scale and beehive weight sensor components from the drop down list to build a complete Do-It-Yourself bee hive scale solution.
We have much more information on making your own scales in our user guide and we will be updating that frequently as we test out ideas.
