This paper describes a measurement system for industry applications where the weight of containers or cable rolls has to be monitored in a flexible way. The measurement system can be used to build several kinds of weight cell applications in which the low power sensor is battery powered and able to communicate with a master unit through a wireless network. The system requirements are described and all blocks derived from these requirements are presented. The implementation of the wireless
