Load cells meet high requirements for hygiene 

Now available from HBM is the new Z6R Bending Beam Load Cell, which has been specifically developed for use in harsh environments and applications with high requirements for hygiene.

Designed for maximum capacities ranging from 20 to 200 KG and featuring an accuracy class of C3, the Z6R is particularly suitable for use in food processing, production of pharmaceuticals or packaging of building materials.



Manufactured in stainless steel, the robust enclosure can withstand mechanical stress and is not affected by dirt, humidity or aggressive environments with acids and alkalis.

Featuring an innovative design, without any gaps or edges, the Z6R is easy to clean and can therefore help to reduce costly downtime.

Furthermore, the new Z6R is also ingress protected to IP68, with IP69K as an option for added protection. In addition, as with most load cells from HBM, the Z6R is also suitable for use in potentially explosive atmospheres (IECEx: Zone 1 + 21, Zone 2 + 21).

Ingress protected to IP68

Mechanically and electrically compatible with the market leading Z6 load cell from HBM, which has been successfully incorporated into various projects throughout the world, integration with existing systems or load cell replacement is quick and simple.
