Weigh modules

The SWB505 MultiMount pairs durability with accurate and reliable weighing, product developers contend. It features the SafeLock, which protects the load cell from accidental overload during shipment and installation and ensures proper mounting alignment.

Alternatively, the MultiMount can be installed without the load cell present and, at the last minute before calibration, the load cell can be inserted. This eliminates any possibility of damage to the load cell or its cable. With or without the load cell present, the weigh module is locked rigidly in its ideal position for installation. This, along with the fact that the mounting orientation is not critical, ensures a safe and professional installation.

The SWB505 modules are designed for a variety of applications, including tank and dynamic loading on conveyors, mixers and blenders. Even in environments with heavy vibration, high torque or in-motion weighing, the company notes, the modules are stable and accurate. The SWB505 also offers a standard lift-off screw that absorbs tipping forces while a vertical down stop provides an added layer of safety. Its rocker-style load pin restores the top plate to its ideal position to maintain accurate, repeatable weight.

The analog quality legal-for-trade load cells use a rocker-pin design that automatically aligns load forces for accurate weighing. In addition, they are hermetically sealed, rated IP68 and available in three different materials (carbon steel, 304 stainless steel, 316 stainless steel), which means they can be used in harsh industrial environments. — Mettler Toledo, www.mt.com/ind-multimount
