Weigh modules are a type of load cell that are designed to be incorporated into a weighing system, such as a weighing platform or hopper. They are typically made up of a load cell, mounting hardware, and a base plate. Weigh modules are available in a variety of sizes and capacities to accommodate a wide range of weighing applications.
The load cell in a weigh module is typically a strain gauge load cell, which measures the force applied to it when an object is placed on the weighing platform. The mounting hardware is designed to securely attach the load cell to the platform or hopper, while the base plate provides a stable surface for the load to be placed on.
Weigh modules can be used in a wide range of applications, including:
Industrial weighing: Weigh modules can be used in industrial weighing applications such as filling, packaging, and batching.
Tank weighing: Weigh modules can be used to accurately measure the weight of liquids or gases in tanks.
Conveyor belt weighing: Weigh modules can be used to measure the weight of materials on a conveyor belt, allowing for accurate tracking of production levels.
Truck weighing: Weigh modules can be used in truck scales to accurately measure the weight of goods being transported.
Process control: Weigh modules can be used in process control applications to ensure that materials are being measured and dispensed accurately.
Weigh modules are often used in combination with other weighing components, such as indicators and controllers, to create a complete weighing system. They can also be customized to fit specific applications or requirements, such as high-temperature or hazardous environments.
