No Junction Boxes
POWERCELL PDX load cells connect to one another in a simple network, eliminating high-maintenance junction boxes and costly totalizers. Electronics are located inside the hermetically sealed load cell enclosures, not in junction boxes that are prone to failure and hard to seal against moisture.
Versatile Upgrade
Model VKR211 conversion kits are versatile enough to be installed easily under a variety of existing weighbridges. They use POWERCELL PDX load cells to replace older weighing components such as mechanical lever systems, analog load cells, hydraulic load cells, and previous generations of POWERCELL load cells.
Durable Cables
All cables are double-shielded with stainless steel protection against environmental and rodent damage. The glass-to-metal load cell connectors form watertight seals. If a cable is damaged, the quick-connect design makes it easy to replace without recalibrating the scale.
Lightning Protection
The specially designed StrikeShield™ lightning protection system helps prevent costly downtime by using multiple levels of protection to safeguard your entire scale system: load cells, cables, and terminal. It is the only system tested by third-party laboratories and verified to withstand multiple direct lightning strikes.
