The SCD shear beam load cell has been developed for use in high capacity, compression type electronic weight and force measurement applications in industrial environments. The precise and rugged SCD load cell offers high resistance to side forces and overload conditions.
The SCD load cells are suitable for severe industrial conditions and they find application in high capacity vehicle scales, platform scales, tank weighing systems, automatic weighing instruments and process weighing applications. With its steel alloy construction coated with corrosion-retardant paint as well as its strain gauge area welded with a stainless steel cover, SCD is protected to IP68 standards meaning that they are fully immersible.
Main problem in truck scales is side forces. Platform elongation due to thermal expansion of temperature differences between summer and winter change and platform deformation due to load distribution causes errors in measurement. In both cases, the load cells which are placed perpendicular to the ground becomes athwart and may cause measurement error. With thanks to the patented angle compensation Technology of Esit, vertical deflection angle of the load cell is detected via sensors to ensure an accurate weight measurement.
The SCD digital load cell has fault and warning flags to notify its status to devices connected to the load cell. Therefore, the master device can detect the normal operation of the loadcell and take the necessary precautions for fault situations.
