Stop Replacing, Upgrade
If your truck scale experiences reoccurring downtime due to a problematic load-cell system, it may be time for an upgrade. Junction boxes can be vulnerable to their surroundings, including water and debris damaging sensitive electronics. This ultimately leads to failure, downtime and rising service costs. But an entirely new weighbridge might not be necessary.
With upgrade kits, it is possible to keep your existing weighbridge and only replace the load cell system underneath. But be careful when searching for a new system to ensure you will not be getting more of the same analog headaches. Upgrading to POWERCELL®PDX® load cells with industry-leading accuracy and reliability is a true upgrade.
If you own or operate a truck scale, then chances are you have dealt with issues caused by the elements. Typically located outside the facility, weighbridges are faced with some of the harshest conditions of any bulk equipment.
