Build a Weighing System with Atrax Load Cell and Mount Assemblies
Atrax load cell and mount assemblies may be incorporated into most structures to create a weighing system. A separate rigid structure such as a ball, castor, or roller deck can be placed on top of four or more Atrax mounts to form a weighing platform. The load cell mounts can be installed in a pit (e.g. flush mount floor scale or work station), above ground, on a scissor lift or embedded in moving equipment like a transfer vehicle (TV) or elevating transfer vehicle (ETV).
Horizontal restraints using travel stops and vertical uplift restraint are built in to each mount. For the SBM series, the vertical weighing loads are transferred to the load cell through a double cup and ball arrangement, which eliminates any horizontal side loads and angular movement (tilting or rotating) created by minor deflections in the deck structure.
The DSBM series load cell and mount assembly employs a centre pivoted tension loading system to transfer only vertical weight loads to the weight sensor. Unwanted horizontal and angular loads are nullified by this “unilink” suspension design.
These Atrax load cell and mount assemblies eliminate the need for troublesome check rods, links, expansion assemblies and other unnecessary hardware.
This ensures maximum accuracy of weighing and protects the load cells from damage.
The Atrax load cell and mount assemblies are available in three weight capacity models, SBM-2T, SBM-5T and DSBM-25K for medium, medium heavy and heavy capacity scale systems.
