Single point load cells possess the characteristic to be insensitive for a moment. This allows measurement of eccentric positioned loads. Weighing arrangements with surface sizes up to 600 x 600 mm can be realized with only one sensor.

The hydraulically damped sensors also add insensitivity to shocks and vibrations. It seems contradictory, but thanks to the frictionless damping, these load cells quickly offer a stable weighing signal. This feature allows utilization for fast processes, such as sorting and filling by weight.

The 260 series is now expanded with capacities up to 200 kg. In addition, the design has been modified to improve the protection class, from IP66 to IP68. This was achieved by means of a smart pressure equalization of the housing. Furthermore, the enclosure is constructed of stainless steel. Central overload protection has been integrated, both in tension and compression.
