Cardinal Scale’s load cell kits come in a wide range of varieties and uses. Cardinal Scale’s load cell kits are used in a variety of industries ranging from agricultural needs to suspension hoppers in industrial to hydraulic kits that are utilized for tank and hopper weighing. All of Cardinal Scale’s load cell kits are constructed with durable, heavy-duty steel and come in groups of 3 or 4 or 6 or more load cells and stands. The load cell kits come in electronic, digital, and hydraulic load cell varieties to fit any industrial weighing application. The overall weight capacities per load cell kit can vary greatly, ranging from just a few thousand pounds to 800,000 pounds! Cardinal Scale’s new DC Series Digital load cell kits even feature new technology that has erased much of cumbersome wiring and the junction box for easier transmission of load cell data. Cardinal Scale features load cell kits can be used in suspension, compression, and shear load cell applications for vessel weighing.

DC Series SmartCell Digital

Cardinal Scale’s DC series SmartCell® stainless steel compression digital load cells daisy-chain together for ease of wiring and the cables connect automatically to the load cell. Internal load cell circuitry eliminates the need for a junction box. The OIML-certified DC series come in either 22,700 kg / 50,000 lb or 45,000 kg / 100,000 lb capacities and they include iSite remote diagnostic monitoring software with automatic text/e-mail alerts. The DC series feature SmartCal for easy calibration, anti-rotation, and extra robust upper and lower cups. The stainless steel IP69K-rated DC series may be interchangeable with Cardinal Scale’s SCA load cells for complete digital conversions on vehicle scales and tank/hopper scales. Sense leads are no longer required like in analog load cells since variations in systems voltage no longer affect the load cell.
