For use in harsh environments, our Model VC3500 double shear beam is manufactured from stainless steel, fully welded and hermetically sealed to provide total environmental protection (IP68 and IP69K). It has dual ATEX and IECEx approval, with a capacity range of 2-200,000kg. For use in dust zones 20, 21 and 22 there is no need for safety barriers. Options of special cable lengths, Parylene coating and high temperature versions are available. For use in high temperature metal industry applications with up to 150°C continuous operation, the model T38 has excellent accuracy and long-term stability and it was designed for minimum maintenance in order to be "fit-and-forget" solution. Complementing our double shear beam load cells is a range of weighing assemblies, such as the unique, patented MasterMount® and the VC3500 Weighing Assembly. Additionally, our range of rugged junction boxes and precision measuring electronics provides the optimum weighing solution in all applications.

We can supply technical drawings and 3D CAD files (e.g. in STEP format) to engineers who are specifying load cells for new equipment and we can supply installation drawings/technical manuals for site engineers responsible for system installation.

CE-mark-transparent  All of our load cells manufactured since July 2014 are RoHS 2 compliant.

We hold an extensive stock of standard products at our warehouse in the United Kingdom and our Global Network of carefully selected Partners also carries stock, so that products can be shipped immediately on request.
