Basics of Load Measurement

Automatic weighing instruments for legal-for-trade applications
Weighing instruments that are to be used in legal-for-trade applications need to comply with the European Measurement Instruments Directive (MID).

Load application in load cells
Be it load direction, support structure or mounting aids – load application on load cells is influenced by multiple factors.

Preventive maintenance of weighing systems
Preventive Maintenance auf scales promises substantial cost savings and increased system efficiency. HBM provides the required components.

Overload protection - good protection for load cells
Protecting load cells against overload is frequently achieved by over-dimensioning them. If the overload protection is actually achieved through this, no additional expenditure is necessary.

Cables and their impact on test and measurement equipment
The complete measuring chain needs to meet high quality standards. High demands should also be made on the measuring cables.

Dynamic Weighing

New standards in data security in digital weighing technology
Protection against manipulation is among the major challenges in digital weighing technology. HBM relies on extremely secure 256-bit encryption technology. Why this is so and what are secrets behind this technology? You'll find the answers in this article.

This video demonstrates how you get quick and precise results using the FIT7A digital load cell and the PanelX software by HBM.

Process and container weighing

ATEX
Up-to-date ATEX markings easily catch you up on the applications, protection concepts, equipment groups, and temperature classes of our load cells.

Legal-for-trade weighing systems in open automation applications
HBM provides the components and systems for weighing technology, to allow scales to be flexibly integrated into filling or loading systems.

Structural Design of Tank Weighing Systems
Some rules must be followed when installing load cells in tanks. Typical tank designs are represented in a stylized manner by way of example.

Hygienic weighing

No chance for bacteria or dirt
Modern weighing technology can be easily included in aseptic or hygienic production processes with the aseptic PW25 and PW27 load cells.

Hygienic design is mandatory
Perfect compliance with hygiene requirements is only possible if the design of all the systems and components involved in production is geared towards hygiene.
