Utilizing the proven Kistler Morse semiconductor strain gauge technology, the rugged LD3TM Strain Gauge System continuously measures the weight of material for in-process and bulk storage vessels. The LD3 TM is suitable for a wide range of applications from dry, solid material measurement to high-pressure washdown, corrosive or submerged environments and is available in capacities from 1,000 lbs. to 25,000 lbs

The design of the LD3 TM keeps the vessel’s center of gravity low and stable. Vessel tipping, “walking”, or overturning is eliminated, protecting your valuable product. Violent agitation is also no match for its integral hold-down design. Installation is simple. Unlike conventional load cells, no extra external hardware, turnbuckles, or specific cell orientation is needed, even in areas of seismic activity or winds (outdoor vessels). This lock-down design eliminates the moving pivot points, bearing surfaces and “floating” hardware that can cause long term maintenance and accuracy problems as well as provide a home for bacteria.

Many competitive load cell designs lend themselves to the entrapment of bacteria, requiring extensive cleaning and maintenance. With its smooth surfaces and hermetically sealed design, the LD3 TM requires less cleaning compared to beam or pancake-style load cells. The LD3’s monolithic design eliminates the need for restraints or stay rods and provides options for seismic applications.


Features and Benefits of the LD3 Strain Gauge:

ORB Enabled; Remotely manage your inventory and stock levels from off-site locations via the internet.

Versatile Load Cell for Dry to Wet Applications; Due to its low cost and high performance, this load cell is suitable for applications ranging from bulk dry solids to sanitary washdown or corrosive environments.

Cleanability and Strength For CIP/SIP; Built-in vessel hold-down eliminates mechanical pivot points, a source of bacteria traps and system errors. Less time spent cleaning.

NEMA-6P / IP68 Submersion Rating, 17-4 ph 900 SS Construction; Unsurpassed waterproof protection and corrosion resistance for long life in rigorous CIP wash down and corrosive areas.

Minimal Deflection; Better system performance on tanks with pipes and process plumbing connections versus load cells that need stay rods or check rods.

The SVS 2000 accepts input signals from half- or full-bridge strain gage load cells through a high resolution (up to 21-bit) analog-to-digital converter. Resolution and gain are adjustable for optimal system performance. Weight is displayed at the indicator and the data can be serially polled from a master device. Analog and digital outputs can be generated from the inputs to the SVS 2000 to provide auxiliary controls.

The SVS 2000 includes setpoint preact, digital interfaces and Kistler Morse’s SentryTM DSP filter which provides stable, accurate readings under a variety of mixing conditions or plant vibrations. SentryTM digitally separates the vessel weight changes from the vibrations and dynamic conditions often experienced on vessels with mixers. This provides stable and accurate weight readings. Its flexibility allows  you to optimize system performance so it won’t be fooled by sudden weight changes like other filter systems.

Using Quick Config, the SVS 2000 is easy to setup and calibrate without test weights or special load cells. Responses to simple Quick Config questions provides the SVS 2000 with the information needed to set up and calibrate the system for your application. Within minutes, the SVS 2000 provides usable weight information. Later, when convenient, a more accurate calibration is easily obtained by moving a known quantity of material.

The SVS 2000 provides easy system configuration and expansion to meet future requirements. Optional digital interfaces include A-B Remote I/O and DeviceNet®.
