The LCM range of wireless compression load cells are designed for general use and are suitable for use in laboratories or in permanent outdoor installations. They are built to exacting standards and there are many special options, including integral carry handles, loading top and mounting base. The standard product is constructed from stainless steel.
The unique wireless housing is manufactured from semi-aromatic polyamide plastic making the load cell far more compact and reducing the overall product weight. Located in the housing are two AAA alkaline batteries which can be easily accessed by removing the telemetry housing cover, while the internal electronics underneath remain completely sealed. The antenna is also internally mounted, protecting it from accidental damage during use and handling. The batteries are standard AAA alkaline batteries, which are readily available and low cost.
The CPW is also supplied as standard with a handheld battery powered display (T24-HS-LS) which can display in both tonnes or lbs, or alternatively, for multi-link applications, a single display (T24-HA) can address up to 12 load cells for individual monitoring, or for summation/balancing applications. The built in wireless electronics operates on the 2.4GHz license free frequency, with a robust proprietary protocol, providing interference free communications.
For more complex systems, including datalogging or monitoring/reporting requirements, we are able to offer a robust tablet PC with installed software for use with single or multiple load cell installations.
The CPW series can be supplied as shown in this datasheet or can be modified to meet a particular application requirement. We are always pleased to discuss any special requirements that can be accommodated.
