MeasureX sensor selection guide

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

How to select load cells?

  • Do select the right load cell for the application in terms of type and environmental compatibility.
  • Do choose the right capacity.
  • Do consider the required accuracy class.
  • Do design-in adequate over/under load protection as well as protection from other mechanical damage (e.g. physical abuse, rodent problems).
  • Don’t make the choice based only on price – cost of ownership is more important.

What is IP rating?

IP (Ingress Protection) Rating is a two-digit number that indicates protection level of electronic equipment. IP rating aims to provide users more detailed information than unclear marketing terms such as hermitically sealed or waterproof.

As defined in international standard IEC 60529 (specified in Australian Standards AS60529 and EN60529), IP Code classifies and rates the degrees of protection provided against the intrusion of solid objects, dust, accidental contact, and water in electronic equipment or mechanical casings with electrical enclosures.

The two digits (characteristic numerals) of IP rating code indicate conformity with the conditions summarized in the tables below. Where there is no protection rating with regard to one of the criteria, the digit is replaced with the letter X.
