Load Cell Simulators / Testers
ScaleTools™, load cell / scale simulators, and load cell testers can be extremely helpful when troubleshooting or setting up a scale system.
A load cell simulator is a handy tool during initial setup, particularly of a batching by weight scale. It replaces the load cell(s) in the system allowing the scale technician to simulate various weights that will trigger the outputs setpoints for activating valves, gates, and mixers. These products are a must for anyone involved in scale installations and repairs. Check out our Load Cell Testers below:
Load Cell Simulator & Tester Selection
The PVS-11 load cell simulator from Load Cell Central is ideal for calibrating scale indicators, troubleshooting, and verifying proper indicator setup. It can also be used for simulating pressure and torque strain gauge based transducers.
The CALOG-LC Load Cell Calibrator is ideal for testing 4 and 6 wire load cells, checking insulation breakdown, weighing system calibration, and simulation. Combining features from the PVS-10 load cell simulator and the LCT01 load cell tester, this is a scale technician's most powerful tool.
Before the introduction of the LCT01 load cell testing instrument, troubleshooting a load cell could take 10-15 minutes or even longer, tediously taking lots of measurements at different points, and making calculations.
Load Cell Central's PVS-10 load cell simulator is encased in a rugged ABS enclosure for use in the field and is designed with the scale technician in mind. This load cell simulator is ideal for troubleshooting scale indicators and verifying proper indicator setup; it can also be used for simulating pressure and torque strain gauge based transducers.
