Digital Load Cell

June 24, 2008
The Smart Force Transducer III (SFT III) incorporates the latest digital weighing technology for gravimetric feeding and metering applications. A mechanical package designed and optimized for duty in process applications involving single-point weighing, the system is standard in the company’s Smart weigh belt feeders, K4G gravimetric blender, and Smart flowmeters. Its single vibrating wire and unique parallelogram design resist torsional loading, making it suitable for unconstrained single-point weighing. Sealed in a NEMA 4/IP65 housing, the load cell’s low power requirement makes it intrinsically safe and approved for ATEX 0, 1, and 2 dust and gas environments. With powerful on-board microprocessors, each sensor is a fully digital, integrated, intelligent weighing system. An integrated, self-adapting low-pass digital filter eliminates environmentally and machine-induced vibration. Field calibration is never required.
