PW12C Single-Point Load Cell: Weighing Precisely with Large Platforms

The PW12C single-point load cell complies with the C3 Multi-Range accuracy class and provides precise weighing results. It is suited to be used in both static and highly dynamic applications, for instance, in checkweighers, for the weighing of building materials or the filling of fluid and gas. It provides optimal weighing results, owing to its integrated off-center load compensation, and is ideal for single-point applications involving large weighing platforms of up to 800 x 800 mm.

The PW12C comes with high stiffness and proven HBM strain-gauge technology, thereby demonstrating dynamics that are unique in the market. The single-point load cell has an individually adjustable overload protection mechanism. The PW12C is resistant to humidity and dirt due to its IP67 degree of protection. Its cable shield is connected to the measuring body and thus optimally protects the load cell against electromagnetic fields. An explosion-proof version of the PW12C is also available as well as a version with a balanced signal output for connection in parallel.

  • Accuracy class: C3 Multi-Range
  • Maximum capacity: 50 kg to 750 kg
  • Maximum platform size: 800 x 800 mm

Dependable results

  • Precise weighing results due to the compliance with the C3 (Multi-Range) accuracy class
  • Legal for trade with a test certificate (according to OIML R60)
  • Integrated off-center load compensation
  • Outstanding signal stability, owing to the 6-wire technology
  • Maximum precision due to its high measuring-body stiffness, even when weighing at high speed
  • Dependable in environments also with electromagnetic fields, due to the cable shield connected to the measuring body.

Precise results when weighing at high speed, owing to its high stiffness.

For industrial applications

  • Suitable for platform sizes up to 800 x 800 mm
  • Ideal for highly dynamic applications, owing to the proven strain-gauge technology
  • Sturdy aluminum measuring body with resistant silicone-rubber cover
  • Safe use, thanks to the integrated overload protection
  • Resistant to humidity and dirt in industrial environments, due to IP67 degree of protection
  • Adjustable overload protection.

Robust for industrial measurement tasks, owing to its integrated overload stop.

Many variants

  • Ten different maximum capacities are available (50 kg, 75 kg, 100 kg, 150 kg, 200 kg, 250 kg, 300 kg, 500 kg, 635 kg, 750 kg)
  • Four different cable lengths ranging from 1.5 m to 12 m are available
  • Legal for trade with a test certificate (according to OIML R60)
  • A version with a balanced signal output for parallel connection is available
  • Explosion-proof versions are available (IECEx+ATEX Zone 1+21, Zone 2+22).

Meets individual requirements, owing to the different maximum capacities and cable lengths available.
