Group Four Transducers, a developer of load cell technology, recently updated its digital load cell product offerings.
Since announcing the SPF5 digital load cell in 2018, Group Four engineering has made strides by taking advantage of the unique ways to improve load cell performance using embedded digital load cell technology, the company said.
“Group Four has taken digital load cells to a new level of accuracy and stability,” said Steve Torres, Group Four founder and CEO. “Not only are they ideal for high-speed filling and check weighing applications, but we also see customers utilizing this technology for force measurement, tank bin and hopper weighing.”
Group Four says it has added many new form factors designed to simplify the mounting and adaption of the digital load cell into existing systems. A digital load cell, calibrated at the factory, helps simplify the implementation, optimization and startup of a force or weight measurement system, the company claimed. Improvements in a load cell’s accuracy and stability, through the digital correction of linearity and temperature effects on Zero and Span, enable users to improve the accuracy of their measurement system.
For customers looking for a comprehensive test machine or control system interface, Group Four also partnered with Admet Technology of Norwood MA, a provider of test and measurement instrumentation. This partnership further simplifies the implementation of digital load cells with an easy-to-use Admet test interface, Group Four said.
“Whether our customers want to utilize our evaluation software directly with embedded load cell technology, utilize it as part of an Admet test interface, or connect to many commonly used HMI or PLCs, Group Four digital load cells offer ease of use and adjustment for all of these measurement solutions,” the company said.
