Digital load cell
HBM Test and Measurement has launched the CAN-capable PW15iA digital load cell, a practical multi-functional product for use, for example, in packaging machinery.
The load cell is ready for use, even in existing structures. It is mainly used in packaging machinery. Since the load cell comes with additional functions (e.g. checkweighing, filling, and batching), there is no need to develop them separately for the packaging machinery. This reduces development time for the machine manufacturer, said the company. The load cell provides an integrated interface for data transmission via CANopen and Devicenet.
The product is made of stainless steel and has a protection class of IP68/IP69K. Thus, the load cell withstands industrial cleaning and is corrosion-resistant. The PW15iA load cells are suitable for different applications, well beyond the field of packaging machinery—ranging from automated batching to underwater force measurement.
