In the case that it is necessary or desirable to separate the microcontroller from the loadcell by some 60cm (because the microcontroller is linked to several other hardware devices), would it be preferable to:

 

a) have 60cm cables from the load cell to the ADC/MC board ?

 

b) place the ADC next to the load cell and then have 60cm cables carrying a digital signal to the microcontroller?

 

c) some other configuration?

 

Any views on appropriate cables to use?

 

Many thanks
