Latest high-precision load cells feature IP69K degree of protection

HBM has launched a high-precision version of its HLCB2 load cells for the construction of scales with a C6 accuracy class conforming to OIML regulations.

The load cells are available with maximum capacities ranging from 220 kg to 4.4 tonnes and are characterized by hermetic encapsulation in addition to their very high precision. They are available with either IP68 or IP69K degree of protection facilitating their use in applications operating in dusty or damp ambient conditions.

The design has been optimised so that any force applied is implemented consistently so that measurement errors are avoided. In addition different loading feet can be fitted to ensure optimal placement in an application.

Typical applications for the HLCB2 load cells are in the food or pharmaceutical sectors, for instance in silo or container scales. These areas require both very high accuracy and, for hygienic reasons, the ability to withstand daily cleaning with high-pressure steam cleaners.
