Modern industrial weighing technology requires accuracy and reliability. The “shearbeam” load cells proved their worth for this. They appear to be robust and easy to install. Moreover the available carrying capacities, from 300 to 10,000 kg, permit their use in almost any application.
However, in practice, the excellent characteristics of these load cells are not always the reality. This because an optimal result requires a perfect mounting. Here these new loading assemblies offer security. The stable base plate gives the sensor a perfect surface, a threaded rod makes the weighing unit windproof for outdoor applications and a rubber damper protects the load cell against vibrations and stray and ground currents.
You have the choice out of zinc plated alloy steel and stainless steel models.
