ZEMIC load cell selected for novel airline cabin luggage weighing machine
ZEMIC, the global load and force sensor manufacturer, represented in the UK by Variohm EuroSensor, has recently announced its participation in an innovative new machine for use at airports that scans, weighs and confirms that passengers carry-on luggage meets the size and weight restrictions required by major airlines.
Designed and manufactured by the Dutch vending experts Innovend B.V., the Cabin Size Scanner (CSS) helps consumers at Samsonites airport located stores to select the appropriate suitcase by a combination of infra-red scanning and platform scale precision weighing using the ZEMICs L6T series single-point load cell. The L6T is widely used for single and double load cell structured platform scales with a maximum platform size of 800 mm x 800mm and is supplied with relevant OIML and NTEP certification. The load cell is part of a wide range which covers aluminium, stainless or alloy steels, to suit single and double load cell structured platform scale applications from small weighing scales to large weighbridge structures and beyond.
Load cell set-up and calibration is made straightforward with ZEMICs Top Sensors T1 weight transmitter that is used to integrate the loadcell with the GUI application through its TCP/IP network. The space saving device saves time with its special theoretical calibration which does not rely on heavy weights to calibrate the machine but uses a ZEMIC calibration sheet supplied with the loadcell by simply entering the full scale output in mV/V. The T1 can also be supplied for Profibus or ProfiNET or may be used with RS232/RS485 connection.
