Product details Precision Compression Load Cell PR 6201

The PR 6201 series load cells are specially designed for weighing high load silos, tanks and process vessels. Their unique design principle, in conjunction with the FlexLock installation kits, enables them to compensate for movements caused by mechanical or thermal contraction or expansion of the container or the support structure.

In addition to the high measuring accuracy and reproducibility, this series is characterised above all by unrivalled reliability, robustness and stability.

The pendulum support principle, in conjunction with the patented measuring element geometry, ensures that the force introduced into the sensor is always optimal, thus minimising the influence on the measuring accuracy while at the same time providing a particularly wide overload range, very high reproducibility and perfect linearity.

A pre-adjustment of the entire measuring chain can be carried out without a reference weight. Due to the - matched output - technology, it is possible to replace a damaged load cell without the need for a new calibration. This saves an enormous amount of time during commissioning. As an option, load cells of this series are also available as Ex-version for use in intrinsically safe circuits.
