The stainless steel platform load cell PC1 is designed to be used in harsh industrial environments. This typically is where there is high humidity or where the temperature varies considerable or where aggressive cleaning chemicals are used.
The PC1 has an OIML R60 approval to 4000D and it is bolt hole compatible with the 1140 and 1142.
The Model PC1 like many platform load cells, has a dual beam mechanical design. Each load cell is manufactured using an optimised complex machining process. This ensures that there will be no measurement error when the load is placed off centre, eg in a corner of a platform.
A platform scale can easily be constructed using this load cell. You simply have to mount the load cell between two plates up to 600 mm square, securing the bottom plate to the threaded holes in the underside of the load cell (cable entry end) and the top plate to the threaded holes on the upper face (opposite cable entry end). The load cell then has to connected to a suitable display or readout.
The PC1 platform load cell can be supplied with an optional ATEX approval. The PC1 load cell is fitted with a 4 core shielded cable as standard.
