A truck scale is a significant investment. It also is essential to your business operations. It is vital to protect this investment from the elements to insure accurate, reliable, and cost effective operation.
Truck scales are exposed to a variety of weather conditions. Heavy rain and high humidity can be especially problematic for scale electronics, causing weighing errors and scale failures. Weighing errors can eat away profits and hurt customer loyalty. Scale failures lead to unplanned downtime and costly repairs. In some cases the impact of water damage is not immediate, but can have lingering effects. Service costs can mount up to search for the exact source of intermittent symptoms.

METTLER TOLEDO eliminates these worries by providing truck scales with the revolutionary POWERCELL™ PDX™ load cell system. The load cell cables and connectors are watertight, sealing the entire network against moisture to IP68 standards. The connectors use the same robust, highly reliable design found in military and medical applications where performance is a matter of life and death. The innovative POWERCELL PDX system completely locks out water allowing the scale to be submerged for weeks without failure!
No More Junction Boxes
Until now, all vehicle load cell systems required some type of junction boxes to sum individual load cell signals and transmit them to a scale terminal. These high-maintenance boxes contain delicate weighing electronics or terminal strips carrying sensitive weight signals. They are regularly opened for service on site and are very difficult to seal against moisture. Water ingress in junction boxes is a primary source of unplanned downtime and expenses.
POWERCELL PDX load cells dramatically change vehicle scale reliability by eliminating junction boxes. Electronic components are protected inside the hermetically sealed load cell enclosures. There are no junction boxes to fail or cause costly weighing errors.
METTLER TOLEDO provides a barrier of protection with the POWERCELL PDX load cell system. It can keep your business up and running when bad weather comes your way!
