Scale Conversion


Are your scales starting to show wear or tear, or are they not operating to the same standard as they used to? While you may think it's time to replace the scale entirely, that can be a very costly and, in many cases, unnecessary solution. Rather than purchase a new scale when yours is operating at a lower standard, consider upgrading to the latest technology with a conversion kit.

Conversion Kits For Your Existing Truck or Rail Scale

Your existing weighbridge can take advantage of reliable POWERCELL® PDX® technology with a Model VKR211 load cell conversion kit. This easy-to-install kit upgrades a weighbridge by using these load cells to replace:

  • High-maintenance lever systems
  • Analog load cells
  • Hydraulic load cells
  • Load Cells damaged by a lightning strike, flooding, etc.

Kits are also available to update previous generations of POWERCELL load cells. Combine the VKR211 conversion kit with an IND560 or IND780 terminal and other time-saving options to fully upgrade your vehicle-weighing operation.

Upgrade to POWERCELL PDX Technology

By incorporating exclusive PDX technology, you can also eliminate problematic junction boxes, which are the primary cause of water-related breakdowns and premature failure of vehicle scale load cells. In addition, the specifically designed environmental and rodent resistant cabling and StrikeShield™ lightning protection system helps prevent lightning from ever being a problem again. These kits are backed by an industry leading 10-year warranty protection, which is the most comprehensive warranty available in the market today.
