The best of both worlds: truck scale load cell PR 6221 with digital Connexx upgrade
The truck scale load cell PR 6221 from Minebea Intec combines the decades of experience of the leading manufacturer of weighing and inspection technology with innovative technology. When used with the converter Connexx, the user benefits from a digital solution that is quick, light and flexible to use and can withstand even the harshest ambient conditions.
Innovative technology and a proven product at the same time? With Minebea Intec, these two aspects are not mutually exclusive. With the truck scale load cell PR 6221, plant manufacturers get a product which, thanks to optimal measuring element geometry, not only offers extreme precision but was also developed specifically for the challenging ambient conditions and demands placed on truck scales.

Converter Connexx: digital upgrade for more user comfort
The fast and easy installation of the converter, which is water-tight in line with protection class IP 68, is a big plus: no cable junction box is required for the Connexx, so it can be set up quickly thanks to its practical plug connections. The standard interface CANopen ensures straightforward commissioning and calibration via indicator X3 or PC. The converter can also be installed separately from the load cell not directly under the platform and is thus exposed to possible flooding for as little time as possible. Fast signalling times ensure the truck is weighed quickly and reliably. Weight values can also be generated individually – per load cell – meaning that defective load cells can easily be identified and replaced. While, for analogue load cells, the service technician has to search for the defective load cell under the weighing platform, with the digital solution, the LED or indicator shows which load cell is affected.
“With the combination of the PR 6221 and Connexx, we are offering a verifiable solution that is extremely resistant to failure,” confirms Product Manager Holger Nichelmann. “This is a win-win for the customer: the proven long product lifetime of 15 years and more reduces service and recalibration costs, while the load cell brings extra quality and precision for vehicle weighing.” What’s more, both truck scale components are produced with the utmost care in Germany, in line with the ‘Made in Germany’ claim.
