Mettler Toledo: Weigh modules assure accuracy, safety
Designed for reliable weighing in a variety of applications, including tank weighing and dynamic loading on conveyors, mixers, and blenders, the SWB505 MultiMount weigh module from Mettler Toledo comes with built-in safety features, including SafeLock, which helps ensure easy, safe, and trouble-free installation and operation.
The SafeLock protects the load cell from accidental overload during shipping and installation and ensures proper mounting alignment. Alternatively, the MultiMount can be installed without the load cell present and, just 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, helps ensure a safe and professional installation every time.
Even in environments with heavy vibration, high torque, or in-motion weighing, these weigh modules are stable and accurate. It 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.
MultiMount is available in capacities from 5kg to 4.4t (11 lb. to 10,000lb).
