Isolated Tension Cell Modules


The ITCM Series utilizes several Rice Lake Weighing

Systems components to provide an unmatched level of

performance in tank and hopper weighing applications

and mechanical scale conversions. The ITCM

incorporates clevis and unique rod-end ball joint

assemblies to reduce the overall length to less than half

of the traditional tension cell mounts, while providing

correct load alignment. In addition, the load cell is

completely electrically isolated from stray currents, which

are a major cause of load cell failure. To complete the

design, a grounding strap connects the two clevis

assemblies to further provide safety to your load cells.
