HBM Launches The Next Generation Of Load Cell For Dynamic Weighing
HBM – a market leader in the field of test and measurement – is pleased to announce the new FIT7A Digital Load Cell, specifically designed to meet the needs of demanding requirements of weighing in modern manufacturing lines.
Suitable for use in a very wide range of production environments which require dynamic weighing, sorting, filling and dosing, the robust FIT7A load cell offers manufacturers high precision and processing speed.
Based on the very latest HBM strain gauge technology, the innovative new sensor features class C4 accuracy per OIML R60 and a maximum scale division Y of up to 25,000 and addresses the problem of bottlenecks, which can often slow down production rates.
In comparison to existing sensors which are only able to handle up to 100 weighings per minute, sophisticated new technology incorporated within the FIT7A means that it is now possible to perform 180 weighings per minute, therefore dramatically increasing production speed and reducing costs.
Even with such increased rates, accuracy remains key with the FIT7A. The FIT7A offers increased precision and can perform accurate measurements under temperature fluctuations and in dynamic applications which means load cells can be installed on multiple production machines in a variety of production environments.
More economical than existing sensors, which are based on Electromagnetic Force Compensation (EFC), the new FIT7A from HBM is expanding the market for machine manufacturers by enabling them to develop completely new machine types and new market segments. This is particularly important for sensitive markets with a necessity for precision and a growing need to achieve the lowest possible overfilling in product packaging.
Compatible with corresponding HBM software PanelX, which combines support for the configuration process with an intuitive user interface, HBM also provide a downloadable free professional software package, AEDPanel 32: version 3, to provide diagnosis and analysis of measurement data, as well as debugging and bug-fixing.
