1. SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS Load cell PR 6201 with the relevant mounting kits must be used only for the weighing applications or force measurements for which it is intended. The dimensions of all mounting and structural components must be calculated so that sufficient overload capacity is ensured for loads which may occur while taking the relevant standards into account. In particular, upright weighing objects (vessel etc.) must be safeguarded against the weighing installation turning over or being shifted, thus eliminating danger to humans, animals or goods even in the case of a break in a load cell or mounting element. Installation and repair work must be carried out only by qualified personnel.

2. DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS The supporting structure of the weigher (i.e. the load cell support) and the vessel or the weigh bridge must be stable enough to withstand the maximum design loads, horizontal (check with spirit level!) and flat., Vessels should preferably be supported by three load cells, platforms and weigh bridges by 4 or 6 load cells (see fig. 1).

* do not constrain this position Fig. 1 Location of load cells and constrainers

E -1

Parasitic forces, horizontal forces and torques are disturbances which can generate measuring failures and in case of exceeding the specified limits may damage the load cell. An accurate constraining of the object prevents of damages and measuring errors without affecting the required space for movement. Therefore special attention should be paid to the design, arrangement and condition of the constrainers. Thermal expansion and contractions of the object are to be taken into account which may affect the required space for vertical movement and thus influence the measuring results.

For safety reasons, a protection from liftoff is generally recommended in all systems of tank weighing. It can be realised separately or with the help of mounting kit MiniFLEXLOCK. The simplest design requires a threaded rod, three nuts and two washers.

Fig. 2

Protection from lift-off

The load cells PR 6201 have a high overload capacity due to the fact that the stress in the measuring element is low (1 mV/V). Forces which are exceeding the max. load without damage limit may change the characteristic of the load cell or in the worst case damage the electrical part. If an exceeding of a.m. limit is possible, e.g. falling loads, a mechanical overload protection (limit stop) is strongly recommended.

4.4 Horizontal constrainer PR 6152/02 (Fig. 7) Another method for constraining especially for bigger nominal loads is the use of the rocking pin PR 6152/02 (nominal force up to 200kN) (Fig. 7). Especially for weighbridges the use of consoles with two rocking pins PR 6152/02, bidirectional positioned, is recommended (fig. 7b).

- All electrical welding at the weighing facility must be finished before mounting the load cells! - Directly when installing the load cell, by- pass the load cell with the flexible copper strap of at least 16mm2 provided for this purpose (fig. 9), to prevent welding or lightning stroke current from passing through the load cell and damaging it.

Fig. 9

Flexible copper strap (supplied with every load cell)

In case electrical welding is required in the vicinity of the load cell, disconnect the load cell cable from the measuring instrument, by-pass the load cell carefully with the above-mentioned flexible copper strap. Take care that the grounding clamp of the welding set is fitted as closely as possible to the welding joint in order to prevent a current flow through the load cell. - Do not lift the load cell on its cable. - Avoid shock stress (falling down, hard shocks) The load cell must be installed so that its axes is vertical. The load direction must be as close as possible to measuring axe of the load cell. Before mounting, fill grease from the bag delivered with the kit into the free space between spherical base of load cell and bottom plate (fig. 3, pos. X) and grease also the load cell head.

Changes of temperature 15 K/h may influence the measuring accuracy. To prevent the load cells from direct heating or cooling effects (sun, wind, heat radiation) heat protection shields or heat protection housings are to be installed if necessary. To prevent force shunts, all connections of the weighing facility to the surrounding construction (pipes, cables, bellows) must be coupled as flexibly as possible.

- Protect the cable ends against contamination. - No moisture must penetrate into the open cable end. - Do not shorten the load cell cable. Connect the prepared cable end and roll up the remaining cable. - The cable screening should not be in contact with earth, except at the connecting terminal in the measuring instrument. - The load cell cabling should be kept away from power circuits. The distance between the measuring cables and the power supply cables should be at least 1m. The load cell cables should be laid in separate cable conduits or steel pipes. - Power supply cables should be crossed at right angles.

Extension cable For connection from the cable junction box to the weighing electronics, we recommend using standard extension cable PR 6135. (PR 6136 for EExi applications) With 4-core extension cables, the load cell supply and output voltage must be connected to pairs of diagonally opposed cores of the extension cable.

Caution The load cells PR 6201 are designed as robust as possible for the required measuring accuracy and have a high reliability. In case of an electrical or mechanical defect, the load cell must be replaced. A load cell repair is impossible.

10. Maintenance - Load cell PR 6201 needs no maintenance. - Pollution on the load cells and on the moveable parts of the weighing installation have to be cleaned in due time - if the pollution influences the weighing or - if the pollution is aggressive against the different materials of the installation. The installation parts of the load cell are to be protected by anti-corrosion grease or spray the load cell and is surrounding with off shore all weather protection spray in aggressive pollution.
