Product information "Shear beam load cell K30S"

The K30S single ended shear beam type load cells are one of the widely used sensors in the field of weighing technology. The load cells are manufactured from alloy steel nickel plated and characterized with high accuracy and linearity. 
These load cells are approved to OIML R60 for 3000 d and guarantee accurate and reproducible results over a long term in harsh industrial environments.
The current calibration output ensures easy and accurate parallel connection of multiple load cells, which removes the need for corner load adjustment. 
The K30S load cells are laser-welded and meets the requirements of protection class IP66. The hermetically sealed enclosure allows operation even under harsh operating conditions.
