POWERCELL® PDX® Technology
By: Brody McCuiston
As with all forms of technology, load cells have evolved rapidly over the last decade. Going from analog to digital was a big first step; however PDX® technology is a game-changer in the industrial weighing industry. From the elimination of junction boxes, to the advanced predictive diagnostics capabilities, METTLER TOLEDO has developed the most accurate load cell available. Accuracy equals efficiency, which in turn leads to rising profits. In this post we’ll look at the top features of POWERCELL® PDX® Load cells and how they can help you in real life:
Environmental conditions account for 76% of a vehicle scale’s ongoing maintenance costs. When parts, labor, and downtime are factored in, the cost of maintenance can strain your budget. With hermetically sealed digital load cells, lightning protection verified by independent testing (which can withstand an up to 80K amp surge), and heavy duty, corrosion-resistant stainless steel designed to combat the abusive environments, the POWERCELL® PDX® load cells are the toughest in class.
POWERCELL® PDX® are world leading digital load cells. That basically means that there are digital components inside of the load cell which handles things such as cell addressing, predictive diagnostics, and digital accuracy. These digital load cells provide the highest level of accuracy with active digital compensation for things such as environmental forces, temperature change, and scale creep, using weighing data inside of the load cell. POWERCELL® technology also allows for more advanced diagnostics and monitoring of the condition of the load cell with real time data on things such as:
- Weighing errors
- Enviromental Conditions
- Network Health
- Load Cell Voltage
Next Generation Convenience
POWERCELL® PDX® load cells come with simple, junction box free networking. These load cells connect to one another in a simple network that transmits individual signals to a scale terminal. This means that hard to seal junction boxes, confusing cables, and difficult troubleshooting can all now be avoided. POWERCELL® PDX® load cells are also the easiest to replace when necessary, with a simple glass to metal cable connection.
This technology is a game changer for customers who need a high performing, durable load cell that out performs the rest. Truck, weigh module, and other applications utilizing this unique product will have the lowest lifetime cost of ownership. Call (800) 722.7824 to request a quote or fill out the form below.
