Z6 Bending Beam Load Cell - Market Standard Since Decades Z6 Bending Beam Load Cell - Market Standard Since Decades | HBM

Z6 Bending Beam Load Cell: The Market Standard for Precision and Robustness in the Weighing Range from 5 kg to 1 t

The precise Z6 bending beam load cell, developed by HBM in 1972, has been continuously optimized for decades. Z6 is based on the strain gauge technology. It is available in nine different versions with maximum capacities that range from 5 kg to 1 t. The load cell with the characteristic bellows has become a worldwide standard, with millions of load cells having been sold. It is employed in platform and conveyor scales for dosing and level measurement as well as in weighing modules that, for instance, are used for tank weighing applications. The metal bellows protects the load cell against the ingress of moisture. The Z6 load cell has been optimized for connection in parallel. An IECEx-ATEX-compliant explosion-proof version is also available.

  • Accuracy class (OIML): up to C6
  • Nominal load: from 5 kg to 1 t
  • Degree of protection: IP 68

Precise

  • D1, C3, C4, C5, and C6 accuracy classes according to OIML
  • Robust 6-wire configuration for compensation of resistance variations
  • Excellent off-center load behavior with a low sensitivity tolerance and output resistance


Precise measurement results
owing to certified, precise load cell technology

Robust

  • Electro-polished stainless-steel measuring body
  • IP68 (100 h, 1 m water column)
  • Hermetically sealed metal bellows
  • Load cells and mounting aids made of stainless steel

Continuously reliable weighing

Flexible

  • Different maximum capacities are available: 5 kg, 10 kg, 20 kg, 30 kg, 50 kg, 100 kg, 200 kg, 500 kg, and 1 t
  • Metrological approvals: OIML, NTEP (USA), NMIA (Australia)
  • Explosion-proof versions are available (IECEx/ATEX, FM (USA))
  • Cable lengths range from 3 to 20 meters
  • Cable can be cut to length owing to the 6-wire configuration


Versatile use
due to high variability and adaptability

How about something a little more rugged?

For use in applications that require high hygiene and robustness, the new Z6R bending beam load cell is available. Compatible with the proven Z6 load cell, optimized for use in harsh environments, Z6R is setting new standards.
