Single point load cells possess the particular characteristic to be insensitive for a moment. This allows measurement of eccentric positioned loads. This way weighing arrangements with surface sizes up to 600 x 600 mm can be realized with one sensor only. Additionally to this characteristic the hydraulically damped sensors add insensitivity to shocks and vibrations. It seems contradictory, but thanks to the frictionless damping, these load cells quickly offer a stable weighing signal. This feature allows utilization for fast processes such as sorting and filling by weight.
The 260 series is now expanded with carrying capacities up to 200 kg. In addition, the design has been modified to improve the protection class, from IP66 to IP68. This was achieved by means of a smart pressure equalization of the housing. Furthermore, the enclosure is out of stainless steel. Integrated is a central overload protection, both in tension and compression. All of these features make type 260 suitable for all kinds of industrial applications.
