Minebea Intec Pendeo Process Digital precision compression type load cell
The Pendeo Process Digital precision compression type load cell from Minebea Intec is specially designed for silo and process vessel weighing. They are based on the tried-and-tested pendulum support principle, which in combination with Minebea Intec installation kits allows for the horizontal expansion or contraction of the vessel without damaging the load cells. This minimizes the influence of the measurement signal.
The use of high-quality steel alloys and an in-house production process, marked with the “Made in Germany” seal of quality, have helped achieve an unprecedented service life.
Pendeo Process load cells used in combination with Minebea’s evaluation electronics provide useful additional functions. These functions help save time and money and increase system availability during setup, running operation and servicing. The functions are combined under the “Digital Assistance Technology” concept. Various functions are available depending on the evaluation electronics selected. For example, the automatic digital detection of load cell parameters helps reduce configuration time and means the scale is ready to use in just a few minutes. If a load cell has a defect, the system automatically displays a digital message indicating the faulty load cell.
In applications not for use in legal metrology, faulty load cells can be simulated, keeping production running until the cells are replaced. Extensive service functions also provide the option of exporting all scale parameters and saving them in a text file. Optimal adjustment of all components within the complete measurement chain ensures quick and easy setup. The integrated microprocessor enables communication with all load cells and actively supports the setup process at the same time. The diagnostic function keeps the user informed of the current status of the measurement chain during the process. The robust RS-485 output signal guarantees problem-free data transmission between the load cells and evaluation electronics..

The new Minebea Intec logo looks good on the equipment that was previously branded as Sartorius in their high precision industrial weighing line. The re-branding process is close to being completed, so if you are looking for a high precision Sartorius industrial scale, load cell or indicator, look for a Minebea Intec product instead.Read More...
A load cell is a device that is used to measure weight or force. W hen a force is applied to it in a specific manner, a load cell produces an output signal that is proportional to the applied force. One end of a load cell is typically supported on a rigid structure while the […]Read More...Load Cells for a Portable StructureNovember 1, 2016
During a measurement, weight acts on the load cell’s body and causes elastic deformation. The body has some spring constant. This strain (positive or negative) is converted into an electrical signal by a strain gauge installed on load cell.

Many manufacturing facilities currently have load cells installed in tank systems that are no longer operational. Most of the times the load cells are left in place and the electrical cables connecting to the controls are simply cut. Production Managers, QC Managers, and maintenance personnel alike have surely encountered “that tank” or “vessel” which never […]Read More...
