Now available from HBM – a market leader in the field of test and measurement – is the new digital C16i load cell, which has been designed to simplify off-centre compression.
Following on from the successful C16a analogue cell from HBM, the C16i is designed to precisely measure heavy loads of up to 60 tonnes with an accuracy class of C3 and C4.
For ideal data transmission, measurement data is converted into a stable RS485 signal (4-wire) in the sensor, which enables users to directly communicate with each load cell in the system. In addition, the load cell is self-sufficient for optimal load introduction.
Manufactured in stainless steel with a protection class of IP68/69K, the robust C16i is suitable for a range of static weighing applications which include bridge and truck scales, or for the level measurement of industrial containers. A uniform design also means that existing scales can be easily and conveniently retrofitted.
Easy operation of a weighing system is a must, especially when it comes to vehicle scales with many loading operations every day. Compatible with the DIS2116 digital weighing indicator, users can quickly and easily change relevant settings, meaning electronic off-centre load compensation is performed easily and accurately at high reproducibility, which offers significant time and cost savings.
