The CCD range of high capacity compression load cells from Applied Measurements are now available with an accuracy of 0.1% enabling them to be used as reference standards. Calibration to BS EN ISO376 Grade 1 and Grade 0.5 have enabled this range of load cells to be used as reference standards for on-site load cell calibration and verification. The standard range of CCD load cells are manufactured to an accuracy of 0.25% for general commercial force measurement and weighing applications, design changes including increasing the height, improve the accuracy to better than 0.1%. The CCD Series are manufactured in ranges from 0-2 to 0-1000t, constructed throughout using high tensile stainless steel, they are sealed to IP67 for use in harsh environments if required. A comprehensive range of analogue and digital instrumentation is available to enable calibrated and certified systems be supplied.
