HI LPS Load Point Assembly
Hardy Process Solutions has a legacy in load point assemblies that may have been upgraded to newer versions. This information is for the HI LPS Series Load Point Assemblies and is provided to support customers who may have purchased this product in the past.
The HI LPS is designed to provide accurate output in the most demanding applications. The load sensor performance exceeds IP67 and NEMA 6 Standards for Wash down Resistance.
The HI LPS load point assembly is a self-centering, end-loaded, single ended shear beam. The LPS is supported at one end. The shear beam is sealed and completely waterproof and supplied with a minimum of twenty (20) feet of cable. The load point assembly is designed to resist angular effects and reduce moment sensitivity. The HI LPS comes standard with C2® electronic Calibration. This feature allows the load point, to be electronically calibrated without the use of test weights.
The mounting hardware is center pivoted and combines spherical washers that reduce the possibility of error producing side loads. The LPS is designed to compensate for thermally induced expansion and contraction of the scale and support structure. The use of conventional check rods for static loads is virtually eliminated. The HI LPS Series mounting hardware was either in stainless steel or mild steel, covered with a chip resistant dual epoxy paint.
