OBBS Bending Beam - Compression Load Cell

OBBS Bending Beam - Compression Load Cell

Quick Overview

The OBBS Series of load cells are bending beam load cells designed for low capacity weighing applications, such as batching hoppers, low profile platforms and conveyor packing and weighing  hoppers. Their IP68 environmental protection rating, polyurethane shielded cable and stainless steel construction makes it ideal for use in weighing applications such as food, pharmaceutical, brewing etc. Load cellls are available with vessel mounts for static applications and shock mounts where vibration and transient loads may occur in feed hopper and conveyor applications. Capacities available from 5Kg up to 500Kg with a 2mV/V output but can be supplied with suitable inline amplifiers to provide a calibrated 4-20mA output.
