To meet our customers’ demands for a higher accuracy solution in applications with platform scales, filling & packing machines, and tank weighing, Thames Side Sensors has developed and released the model T66 load cell with OIML C6 accuracy (6000 divisions) and significantly increased resolution.

This is available now in capacities 50, 75, 100, 150, 200 and 250kg, in a 6-wire configuration (including sense wires). It can be used in extremes of temperature, i.e. from -30 to +70 °C (as can the original C3 version).

Our standard industry-leading Polyurethane cable is of course included, which ensures much better cable protection than the industry standard PVC cable in in environments subject to stringent cleaning requirements using harsh chemicals at high temperatures. Protection to IP68/IP69K is assured, as is our usual high quality standard of manufacturing – we offer a 5 year warranty against any manufacturing defects (as with many of our load cells).

For very demanding applications, where strong chemicals and stress corrosion are a concern, we can supply this load cell with a special Parylene coating that protects the load cell and significantly increases its lifetime.

The load cell can be used by itself, or with the excellent mounting accessories LA66 Anti-Vibration, LA66 Tension (self-aligning accessory) and the unique LeverMount® Lite weighing module.

If you would like further information about this benchmark high accuracy load cell, or its possible use in your application, contact us now.
