POWERCELL® PDX® Load Cells

The most accurate and reliable vehicle load cells in the world

POWERCELL brand load cells have stood up to the most extreme forces of nature in truck and rail scales for more than 20 years. POWERCELL PDX load cells take this reliability to a new level through predictive diagnostics to keep you continuously informed about your scale's performance. The load cell's on-board microprocessor also provides you with the most accurate weight possible by continually adapting to common factors such as temperature, nonlinearity, hysteresis, voltage variation, and sensor creep, which affect all strain gauge load cells. POWERCELL PDX is designed to be used in virtually any environment tp provide you with unmatched performance and industry leading total cost of ownership

 

 

 

 

 

 

Features and Benefits

No Junction Boxes

Revolutionary design eliminates all junction boxes, which are wired by hand in the field and are a common cause of vehicle scale failures 

Simplified Network

Removing junction boxes reduces the number of connections by at least 25% compared to other systems

Lightning Protection

Verified by independent testing to withstand up to an 80k amp surge, the built-in lightning protection system provides a shield for your load cells and the terminal to keep your scale running and eliminate unplanned expenses due to bad weather

Submersible

Hermetically sealed, IP68/IP69k system, including the fully welded enclosure and watertight connectors, ensures that a flooded scale won't destroy your maintenance budget or give you an unnecessary insurance claim

Market-leading, Long-lasting, Accuracy

100% tested to provide superior weighing performance in all environments and conditions

Predictive diagnostics

Self monitoring system can notify you (on screen, email, text message) of potential weighing errors before they become significant problems

Robust Design

Heavy-duty, corrosion-resistant stainless steel designed to resist damage in abusive environments

Easy Maintenance

Quick- release connectors are designed to save time and money, getting your scale back in service quickly while using the same robust, highly reliable design found in the harshest and wettest military and medical applications, where performance is a mattter of life and death

Worldwide approvals

  • OIML R60 C3, C4, C6
  • NIST HB44 10,000 III L-M

The POWERCELL® brand has stood the test of time with load cells in the field for over 20 years, weathering the harshest conditions and maintaining weighing accuracy. POWERCELL® digital load cells offer a vast improvement in weighing accuracy when compared to traditional analog load cells, providing METTLER TOLEDO quality at an economical price

 

 

 

Features and Benefits

POWERCELL® Technology

POWERCELL® load cells provide superior quality and reliability for heavy capacity weighing in the harshest environments. Digital signal processing provides advanced weighing performance compared to analog load cells

Simple Connectivity

 

Traditional analog load cells to junction box connections provide endless headaches and frustration. POWERCELL® load cells provide simple connectivity to junction boxes via a simplified network. Cables are securely attached to load cells at the factory for a strong connection and easy installation in the field

Improved Diagnostics

 

Unlike traditional analog load cell networks, POWERCELL® load cells provide diagnostic capability to alert the operator to the location of an issue. Diagnostics makes it possible to work on the individual load cell rather than going through the lengthy process of testing each cell. Compatibility with DataBridge™ provides additional value

Rocker Column

 

A quick search on line will reveal the many headaches caused by traditional analog load cells. One common nuisance is the tendency for cables to eventually wrap around the cell. METTLER TOLEDO has solved this problem with the unique rocker column on all load cells. This also helps to align the load cell for accurate weighing. POWERCELL® load cells provide superior accuracy, reliability and ease of use at an economical cost
