Troubleshoot load cell apps with wireless remote connectivity solution

Before the introduction of the electronic load cell, mechanical lever scales were widely used in many industrial and commercial applications. The accuracy of these mechanical scales depends on the scale calibration and maintenance. Today load cell-based weighing systems dominate the entire weighing industry and are the industry standard. Though load cells are reliable, they are subject to damage due to overloading, lightning strikes, chemical or moisture ingress, mishandling (such as damaging the cable, or dropping the cell). Troubleshooting a scalefitted with more than one load cell to detect defective cells is always a tedious procedure. Multiple load cells also make troubleshooting harder. The larger the scale, the harder this can become. This application note explains how the Agilent wireless remote connectivity solution helps load cell application service technicians ease their troubleshooting task.
