Installation Accessories

We offer the following accessories for the shear beam load cells

Mounting Unit SIWAREX WL230 SB-S SA

The self-aligning mounting units for SIWAREX WL230 SB-S SA load cells are suitable for use in bin, platform and roller table scales. With these new mounting units you can build truly compact scales. The installation height for e.g. the 2t type is only 76mm.

Base plate with elastomer bearing SIWAREX WL230 SB-S SA

The combination of the base plate and the elastomer bearing together with the load cell series SIWAREX WL230 SB-S SA create a self-aligning bearing unit. The elastomer bearing has a special buildup: a lateral force causes a much higher deflection as the same force in measuring direction. Therefore, it is possible to prevent high tensions on the loadcell body in case of lateral forces. 


The load cell is not included in the scope of delivery of the base plate and the elastomer bearing.

Load foot SIWAREX WL230 SB-S SA

This self-aligning load foot for SIWAREX WL230 SB-S SA load cells can be used for the quick and easy construction of platform and hopper scales.


The load foot directly introduces the force into the load cell and is designed for rated load ranges from 500 kg to 5 t (0.49 ... 4.92 tn. l.).
