Minebea Intec PR 6201 Precision Compression Load Cell
PR 6201 Compression load cell from 500 kg to 520 t. PR 6201 provides absolute precision for container cars and dosing systems. Made of stainless steel, they are highly resistant and also insensitive to vibrations.
The PR 6201 range of load cells is specially designed for weighing silos, tanks and process vessels. The unique design principle, in combination with the FlexLock installation kits, makes it possible to counterbalance
movements arising from mechanical or thermal expansion or contraction of the vessel or its supporting construction. A particular design characteristic is that the overall height and shape of the load cell remain unchanged, even after two decades of use. Alongside this, the unit has an especially high overload capacity of up to 200%.
At the same time, this range distinguishes itself – in addition to its high measurement accuracy and repeatability – above all for its unmatched reliability, robustness and stability, which enable trouble-free operation without adjustment, year after year. The pendulum support principle, combined with patented measuring element geometry, ensures that force transmission into the sensor is always at the optimum level and, in this way, the effect on measurement accuracy is minimized. At the same time, the load cell offers a particularly high overload range, high repeatability and perfect linearity . There is an especially wide working temperature range attributable to special resistance strain gauge technology. The hermetically sealed enclosure and special TPE cable allowthe unit to be used even under extreme operating conditions in harsh production environments. The entire measurement chain can be calibrated without the use of a reference weight. Due to matched output technology, a damaged load cell can be exchanged without the need for re- calibration. This saves a tremendous amount of time during commissioning. An explosion-proof (Ex) version of this range of load cells is also available, as an option, for use in intrinsically safe environments.
For each mm of displacement, that the top of the load cell is shifted from the vertical axis, a horizontal restoring force of 0.5% of the applied load is generated.

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...

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...
