The Reliability of POWERCELL Load Cells

If you buy and sell goods by weight, your vehicle scale is crucial to your bottom line. The scale works as your cash register. If the scale is not working, your business slows down and your revenues suffer.

What can cause a vehicle scale load cell failure?

The POWERCELL® Advantage

METTLER TOLEDO vehicle scales use POWERCELL load cells. When you have a vehicle scale with POWERCELL load cells, you do not need to worry about any of the issues above. The unique POWERCELL design and production processes eliminate all of these concerns. Actual service records reveal that METTLER TOLEDO POWERCELL load cells have an extremely low failure rate. They are also specifically designed to withstand the harsh climate and temperature extremes that many markets demand. This insures that METTLER TOLEDO vehicle scales will provide you with a low total cost of ownership.    

It is not uncommon for a customer to continue to use a vehicle scale with analog technology and not even realize they have a malfunctioning or failed load cell. METTLER TOLEDO vehicle scales analyze individual cell performance to insure the entire system is working properly.

In the past, some load cells could take 8 to 12 hours to diagnose and replace. However, the advanced diagnostic capability and serviceable design enables POWERCELL load cells to be replaced easily. In the rare cases where a replacement is required, the scale can be back up and running in less than an hour. With METTLER TOLEDO, service costs are low and your scale down-time is always minimized.
