Weigh Modules continuously monitor load cell performance.
Press Release Summary:
May 8, 2014 - By providing continuous load cell monitoring, SWB605 PowerMount Weigh Modules discover variances before they impact productivity, allowing manufacturers to avoid errors such as load cell overload and out-of-range temperatures. POWERCELL-equipped load cells with on-board microprocessors also adjust weighing signal to compensate for environmental changes. This allows modules to provide accurate weighing regardless of temperature, linearity, hysteresis, and creep.

SWB605 PowerMount Weigh Modules Enhance Safety and Service
Press release date: May 6, 2014
METTLER TOLEDO's new SWB605 PowerMount weigh modules continuously monitor load cell performance, discovering variances before they impact productivity. This allows manufacturers to stay in control of processes and avoid mistakes before they cost money.
METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to announce the launch of its state-of-the-art weigh module SWB605 PowerMount. Designed to be easy to install, SWB605 PowerMount offers rugged construction, built-in safety features and continuous load cell monitoring. These design details particularly standard POWERCELL load cell monitoring enable easier operation and maintenance for significant time and cost-savings long term.
Without the kind of continuous monitoring offered by POWERCELL, errors such as load cell overload, poor communication between modules, out-of-symmetry errors, and out-of-range temperatures can go unnoticed for long periods. When they do, out-of-specification batches and poor quality product are the result. Significant costs and damage to company reputation can occur.
SWB605 PowerMount POWERCELL-equipped load cells with on-board microprocessors not only alert operators to performance degradation they also adjust the weighing signal to compensate for environmental changes. This allows SWB605 PowerMount weigh modules to provide accurate weighing regardless of the effects of temperature, linearity, hysteresis, and creep. In the unlikely event of load cell failure, SWB605 PowerMount's design also makes individual load cells easy to replace.
Global approvals are standard on SWB605 PowerMount POWERCELL, including OIML C3, C6 and C10, NTEP 5000d and 10000d.
