With the launch of its FIT7A digital load cell, HBM has opened a new chapter in dynamic weighing and industrial metering applications. With its higher precision (Class C4 according to OIML R 60), this load cell enables the extension of strain gauge technology to applications reserved until now for electromagnetic force compensation technologies (EFC).
And that while maintaining the key benefits of strain gauge transducers, namely sturdiness proven over decades of use under rough industrial conditions, a high sampling rate (180 weighings/min.) and above all a price less than 60% of that of the EFC technology.
With the FIT7A, HBM is underlining its know-how in the field of digital strain gauge transducers. At the very beginning of the 2000s, HBM was the first manufacturer to bring a dynamic load cell with onboard electronics to the market. And the French industries were among the very first to adopt this technology.
