load cell data logging

I've got a loadcell with hx711 which is loging thrust from my motor. I would like to be able to get this data into vesc_tool. At the moment I am logging on a raspberry pi, but could the hx711 be connected to the vesc (vesc six) so that it handles all the logging? Sugestions on how or where to find the right documentation?

After looking at the code of vesc_tool, the easiest way I can think of is to set up the raspberry pi to output the data over serial and recieve it with as if it is an victron ext monitor. I guess I just have to figure out what format the data have to be in. Or is this stupid and there is a better way?

Hi, did you get anywhere on sending the data into the VESC?
