The PC22 is a compact, low capacity aluminium single point load cell ideal for a wide range of weighing applications. The low price and extraordinary precision of this model means that it can be used in a wide rang of inexpensive platforms such as counting scales and gas & oxygen bottle weighing as well as retail scales, bench scales, small platform scales, multi-head weigher, medical scales and many more.
The Model PC22 like many platform load cell, 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 steel or aluminium plates up to 350 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 has to connected to a suitable amplifier or display/readout which can be calibrated to read the correct weight value.
