Load Cell Assembly

The heart of any weighing device is the load sensing element. The Modu-Deck parallel link suspension and rocker fulcrum load cell provide a unique and vastly superior load sensing system. The double link 360ยบ rotation suspension eliminates off-centre side load weighing errors created by thermal expansion of the weighbridge and accelerating or braking vehicles. The link suspension promotes return to zero, linearity, back weighing and enhances overall accuracy.

The rocker fulcrum load cell is the only load cell which allows the weighbridge to determine the loading axis of the load cell. Both axes remain constant to one another in both the unloaded, and fully loaded position when deflection in the weighbridge occurs. This unique feature eliminates the main source of weighing errors for which most other systems do not adequately compensate.

The link and rocker fulcrum system is the most forgiving and quickest system to install, as it is simple to align and shim. Grouting is not required, further speeding up the installation.

Ease of installation, ease of maintenance and sustained accuracy are trademarks of the system, which has proven itself in thousands of installations.
