Bending Beam Load Cell Gets Double the Capacity

Jan. 16, 2018
PENKO Engineering B.V. has doubled the capacity of its type 300 load cell so it is now capable of handling up to 500kg.

Load cell type 300 is a popular bending beam sensor. Thanks to the compact design, high reliability, and accuracy, this load cell is ideal for automatic and non-automatic weighing equipment. The reliability is guaranteed by the stainless steel construction and the hermetic sealing of all electrical parts, resulting in the protection classes IP68 and IP69K. The accuracy is/was in accordance with the "industrial" standard, so suitable for weighing instruments of 3,000 d or, in other words, with an accuracy of 0.03%.


In the carrying capacities of 50 to 500kg, the sensors are also available with an accuracy that allows applications of 6,000 d or 0.017%. For weighing systems used for determining the mass of objects with great variety in weight, this offers new possibilities. The improved accuracy is captured in the certificate of the load cell, so it can also be used for trade applications.
