The digital load cells in the Pendeo® Process series from Minebea Intec are specially designed for silo and process vessel weighing.

They are based on the tried-and-tested pendulum support principle, which in combination with Minebea Intec installation kits allows for the horizontal expansion or contraction of the vessel without damaging the load cells. This minimises the influences on the measurement signal.

  • Capacities from 2 t up to 50 t.
  • Easy to install.
  • Tried-and-tested pendulum support principle.
  • Housing made from stainless steel.
  • High overload capacity.
  • Not sensitive to vibrations.
  • Hermetically sealed, IP68 (1.5 m water depth/10,000 hrs), IP69k.
  • Verifiable according to OIML R60.
  • Extensive diagnostic function.
  • Made in Germany.

Pendeo® Process load cells used in combination with Minebea Intec evaluation electronics provide useful additional functions. These functions help save time and money and increase system availability during setup, running operation and servicing.

Automatic digital detection of load cell parameters helps reduce configuration time and means the scale is ready to use in just a few minutes. If a load cell has a defect, the system automatically displays a digital message indicating the faulty load cell. In applications not for use in legal metrology, faulty load cells can be simulated, keeping production running until the cells are replaced.  

The integrated microprocessor enables communication with all load cells and actively supports the setup process at the same time. The diagnostic function keeps the user informed of the current status ofthe measurement chain during the process.
