Step 3

Mount the proximity sensor

The proximity sensor is used to determine when to capture the weight in the bucket.  This allows for the system to operate dynamically or in-motion.  Meaning that there in NO need to stop to get the weight from the bucket.  The weights are captured automatically when the bucket is lifted passed this proximity sensor.
