Truck Scale Upgrades
Industrial Weighing Products
If your truck or rail scale is constantly out of commission or plagued with costly maintenance issues, a truck scale upgrade might be the answer. From complex lever systems to traditional analog scales, our upgrades are the ideal way to reduce maintenance costs, improve performance, and extend life for a fraction of the cost of a new scale.
For many of our truck scale upgrades and conversions, we recommend the PowerCell PDX load cell from Mettler Toledo. Its revolutionary design eliminates the most common causes of breakdowns including junction box failures, moisture infiltration, and lightning damage. Since these design advancements can drastically reduce the cost associated with maintenance and downtime, upgrading to the PowerCell PDX is the perfect solution for reducing a scale’s overall cost of ownership on a tight budget.
Since the creation of Gen I in 1988, Mettler Toledo’s PowerCell technology has been the industry standard for heavy-capacity load cells. Over 30 years and two generations later, the newest PowerCell is still the most reliable and revolutionary heavy-capacity load cell on the market. This longstanding leadership is largely due to Mettler Toledo’s superior standards. Each PowerCell is crafted from the highest-quality components and must pass a rigorous inspection before it ever sees a customer.
It’s no secret, junction boxes are one of the leading causes of truck scale downtime. Many manufactures have tried to solve these issues by redesigning the junction box. Despite those efforts, junction boxes continue to be the most vulnerable parts of a truck scale. Our partners at Mettler Toledo decided to take a completely different approach. Instead of trying to improve the junction box’s design, Mettler Toledo created a revolutionary new type of digital load cell technology that eliminates the need for a junction box. This leap in technology was made possible by digitizing the weight data inside of the load cell and creating a unique daisy-chain system.
When lightning strikes, the PowerCell PDX load cell systems are equipped with the latest StrikeShield™ lightning protection system to defend your entire vehicle scale from load cells to the terminal. StrikeShield™ is the only system of its kind to be verified by an independent third-party lab to withstand multiple lightning strikes with surges up to 80k amp.
Don’t let a flooded scale cause unnecessary insurance claims or destroy your maintenance budget. Due to their hermetically-sealed construction, PowerCells are completely submersible and boast an amazing IP68/IP69K rating. This design, in conjunction with the daisy-chain style connection, makes the PowerCell one of the only flood-proof truck scale systems on the market.
Mettler Toledo is so confident in their product, they back the PowerCell PDX with an unprecedented 10-Year Warranty. Don’t just take our word for it, compare Mettler Toledo’s protection to warranties offered by other manufacturers.
