The T68 stainless steel S-type (or S-beam) tension load cell offers a high accuracy, legal-for-trade weighing solution. It has OIML C3 approval from 500kg - 5000kg and is fully welded and hermetically sealed to IP68/IP69K – which ensures excellent long-term signal stability.
Although normally used in tension, it can be used in compression or in a bi-directional (static) manner with suitable adapters in the right application. It is not suitable for dynamic use through zero load.
As an option, ATEX approval is available for use in hazardous areas where an explosion risk exists. For gas zones 20, 21 and 22 the ATEX certification does not require the use of safety barriers.
For ease of attachment to the structure being weighed, for example a hanging hopper, a range of rod end bearings is available.
Note: this model T68 replaces the previous model 650 load cell.
