The robust PW29 devices are effectively protected from overloads by an adjustable overload stop. The PW29 devices are available in 5 maximum capacity steps from 100kg to 1t.

The load cells are designed with an accuracy class C3MR up to a Y-value of 15000.They come with an NMI test certificate and OIML conformity certificate to confirm their high accuracy and suitability for use in verifiable scales.
