METTLER TOLEDO Exhibits Secure Tank Scale Performance at POWTECH

Weigh modules for tank scales with fully digital load cells prevent loss of material, bad batches and downtime. They compensate for environmental influences, offer predictive maintenance and allow for simple installation. METTLER TOLEDO will showcase its PinMountTM weigh module, which features truly digital POWERCELL® PDX® load cells, at the POWTECH Fair in April 23 to 25 in Nuremberg, Germany, in Hall 1, boot 413. POWTECH is the premier international trade fair for mechanical processing technologies and instrumentation.

The PinMount weigh module on display at POWTECH offers true predictive maintenance, simplified and reliable communication and watertight load cells that work even when submerged. The incorporated POWERCELL® PDX® load cells host an on-board microprocessor to monitor internal and external influences that affect weighing accuracy. It compensates for temperature changes, vibrations, hysteresis and non-linearity, providing extraordinarily accurate results.

A breach-detection system alerts users if the enclosure is damaged by accidental puncture or tampering. It also alerts users to replace a load cell before moisture causes weighing errors or scale failure, increasing uptime and preventing loss of raw material and bad batches.

The load cells connect to each other in a simple network, eliminating junction boxes. Electronic components are protected inside hermetically sealed load-cell enclosures. The load cell, including all cables and connectors, is water-tight, effectively sealing the entire network against moisture according to IP68 standards.
