Zemic H8C Load Cell
The Zemic H8C Load Cell is one of the types of load cells produced by Zemic. This type of load cell is a shear beam load cell built to withstand ingression of liquids. This makes the Zemic H8C load cell perfect for use in different application like automotive, industrial, and especially in the medical field. Many hospitals beds are equipped with this type of load cell.
The Zemic H8C is made of nickel plated alloy steel. Steel alloy has a bending quality. This ensures the load cell’s improved hardness, durability, toughness, and ability to withstand corrosion. Alloy steel is also used in jet engines, nuclear power plants, and other spacecraft.
The Zemic H8C load cell is available in OIML R60 C3, OIML R60 C4, and OIML R60 C5. C3, C4, and C5 accuracy classes are given to load cells with high accuracy specification. Load cells in the C3, C4, and C5 Accuracy Class classification are mostly used with weighing machines used for mixing different construction materials like sand and cement.
The maximum compression force capacity of H8C load cells can range from 0.1t to 10t. Overload is allowed but to a certain extent only.
The safe overload capacity of H8C load cell is 150% of its maximum load capacity. Exceeding 150% may put the load cell in danger of being deformed.
The maximum overload allowed is 300% of the maximum load capacity. Exceeding 300% will deform the load cell and cause inaccurate measurements.
Load cells need to be properly mounted in the right position. Improper mounting of the load cells will result into wrong readings and inaccurate results. Overloading weighing device is sometimes unavoidable which may result permanent deformation of the load cell. Permanent load cell deformation will make calibration impossible. Another common problem with load cells is electrical damage. Being exposed to significant electrical currents damage the resistors in the load cells.
