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.
