Rugged load cell for precise weighing of suspended loads
With the Z16A tension load cell, HBM offers a unique solution for weighing suspended loads. Applications include gravimetric level measurements or batching with attached process containers.
Made of stainless steel, the Z16A tension load cell is available for maximum capacities of 7.5 and 15 metric tons. Two different versions feature accuracy class D1 and C3 according to OIML R60. The Z16A is also hermetically encapsulated and achieves degree of protection IP68/IP69K, which allows for use in damp environments.
Due to the sophisticated way in which force is applied, the Z16A is ideally suited for suspended installation in container weighers and in conveyor, batching and hybrid weighers. The load cell is EMC-tested in accordance with OIML R60 (2006) and is able to withstand loading of up to 10 V/m.
The optionally available M36x3 adapter for the Z16A can be used for easy mechanical integration. Knuckle eyes are also available as an alternative. Different legal-for-trade cable lengths are available in the 6-wire configuration. This flexibility reduces the cost of installation without affecting the class accuracy of the load cell.
