Pallet scale | OMEGA Waagen GmbH
This U-shaped scale is suitable for quick and uncomplicated weighing of Euro pallets with changing areas of application. The pallet scale can be loaded using a pallet truck, forklift or other industrial truck.
The pallet scale from OMEGA Waagen GmbH is made of 5 mm thick steel in a powder-coated version or in stainless steel. As with all scales, the construction must be rigid against torsion and deflection. Therefore, in addition to the perfect construction, we have opted for a material thickness that still has plenty of reserves.
Our pallet scales are equipped with high-precision OMEGA shear weighing cells with nominal load well above the weighing range. This load reserve is 1,000 kg for a scale with a weighing range of 3,000 kg, since four load cells with a nominal load of 1,000 kg each are installed. The load is introduced into the load cell via load feet with elastomer, which ensures the best weighing results. The connection cables of the load cell are brought together in a terminal and trim box. From here it goes on to the evaluation electronics with a 5 m cable.
The evaluation electronics WA-01 for normal applications and the WA-08 for demanding applications are available for our pallet scales. The inexpensive DFWL can also be used in a plastic housing for simple applications. All evaluations can be used stationary via power pack or mobile via rechargeable solutions.
Areas of application
The mobility of the pallet scales in particular means that there are hardly any limits. It must be noted that a stable base is a prerequisite for correct weighing results. The pallet scales have degree of protection IP67, on request the load cells can also be designed in IP69K. So there is nothing to prevent it from being used outdoors. The stainless steel versions are predominantly, but not exclusively, used in the food and chemical industries. After use, the pallet scales can be stored to save space, making them particularly suitable when there is little space
Weighing ranges and resolution
The pallet scales are available in various weighing ranges with the corresponding resolution. The larger the weighing range, the lower the resolution. A principle that can also be used for our high-resolution pallet scales, even if much higher resolutions can still be achieved than with many competitors.
A multi-range scale is practically 2 scales in one. In the case of a pallet scale with a weighing range of up to 3,000 kg, this is divided into two areas. This results in the following areas and resolutions:
In practice, the pallet scales display from 0 to 1,500kg in 500g steps and from 1,500kg to 3,000kg in 1,000g steps. Once in the upper weighing range, the resolution of 1,000 g is maintained even when the load is released until the scale has passed through zero.
The loading can be done with any industrial truck which is suitable for the transport of Euro pallets and is equipped with a lifting device.
Weighing other packages is also possible if, for example, a screen printing plate is placed on the pallet scales.
