Flintec launch easy fit load cells for onboard weighing applications


Flintec, a leading load cell and force measurement solutions provider, has announced the launch of its innovative onboard vehicle weighing DSB7 range of load cells.

The design of the DSB7 family allows for easy fitment, reducing the need for extensive chassis modification and technical electrical installations, while offering greater load capacity and an array of new features and accessories.

Capacities are 7.5-, 15- and 25-metric tons, allowing use across most types of commercial and industrial vehicles including light trucks, tippers, waste and recycling trucks, heavy-duty vehicles and agricultural vehicles. The range provides reliability, accuracy and robustness with minimal changes to a vehicle weight and dimensions.

The DSB7 family exhibits high accuracy to 0.15%, 0.25% and 0.5% (or better) combined error, alongside a 300% ultimate overload limit. Each cell is supplied with a traceable manufacturer’s calibration certificate. The often harsh conditions in which these load cells will be used have resulted in the range being manufactured in corrosion-resistant stainless steel, environmentally rated to IP68 along with a fully sealed M12 5m cable.

To back up the capacity specification, Flintec has had the DSB7 independently tested with footage available on the Flintec website. Four new videos show the load cell being put through its paces in a series of compression, shear, tensile and twist destruction tests. The footage along with technical information can be found here.
