Platform scales include individual platforms and combinations of platform and evaluation. Usually a platform size of 800 x 800 mm is not exceeded. Larger platforms are called floor scales or weighbridges. A further distinction is made by the number of load cells. In the design, a single point load cell or a double bending beam is usually used. Shear beam load cells are common for weighbridges.
Protection classes up to IP69K are available from OMEGA Waagen GmbH. This makes these platforms suitable for all areas of application, including the food and chemical industries. The protection class limits the usable range in terms of impermeability to dust, contact and water.
For most industrial applications, protection class IP67 will be sufficient. The technology is thus tightly protected against the penetration of dust and dirt and against contact. A temporary immersion is also possible. From here on, higher protection classes only differ in their impermeability to water ingress. IP68 allows permanent submersion. Cleaning with a steam or high-pressure cleaner is possible with IP69K. This is also the highest possible protection class.
In most cases the platform is made of stainless steel. The substructure is available in steel, powder-coated and stainless steel. Aluminium is usually used for the load cell, but stainless steel variants are also available in our product range.
The choice of the material is strongly dependent on the desired use. For applications in the food sector, the substructure is also made of stainless steel. This material can also be treated with the usual cleaning agents.
The construction varies depending on the platform scale. For smaller ones, the substructure and the load plate are connected directly to the load cell. Larger ones require a corresponding construction between load plate and substructure.
The decisive factor is the optimal load introduction into the load cell in order to use the strength of the load cell, the corner load compensation.
The variations of the platform scales are as versatile as their use. Nominal loads from a few grams up to 1,000 kg. Resolutions in the milligram range are possible with smaller platforms. Round and square platforms are found in our product range.
verified, calibrated or dakks
All platform scales are calibratable and can be calibrated. If desired, you will receive the scale calibrated and ready for use and can use it directly. Equipped with a factory calibration protocol, it can be used as part of a quality management system according to DIN EN ISO 9001.
A DAkkS calibration enables the use within the scope of ISO TS. All calibrations and documentation can be ordered directly.
The platform scales are offered in legal-for-trade accuracy class C3. Some of them can also be designed in accuracy class C6. This is the highest accuracy currently achievable in class C. Thus, a resolution twice as high as C3 can be achieved.
You can read more about the accuracy class in our blog. There the topic is described in detail.
Our evaluation electronics have a type approval. This is a prerequisite for conformity assessment and thus for use in legal metrology.
This type approval can also be understood as a seal of quality. The tests are fully comprehensive and are carried out by a government agency.
High-quality accessories from OMEGA Waagen GmbH extend the functionality of our platform scales. We offer our tripod in two sizes to cover all applications. The cables are protected inside the stand. Bluetooth and W-LAN are useful extensions for data transmission. ETHERNET and serial data transmission is also possible.
Transport trolleys provide mobility. The platform can be used comfortably and without much effort at different locations. The combination of several platforms is also conceivable and can be designed, for example, as with our picking table KT-01.
