Digital load cells


LAUMAS' CC-Link IE Basic compatible LCB model offers advanced performance and ease of use.

The connection of analog applications to smart, networked systems is an elementary step towards the digitalization of the manufacturing and processing industry. Companies that want to develop their weighing systems can successfully advance their digital transformation with the new CC-Link IE-compatible universal digitizer for load cells and weight transmitters LCB from LAUMAS.

The latest model of the LCB offers greater performance and ease of use through a series of upgrades. The upgrades meet the growing needs of competitive Industry 4.0 applications in numerous industrial sectors, from applications in chemical and pharmaceutical production to applications in heavy industry.

Given the importance of data communication in the digital age, LAUMAS has expanded the network technologies that the latest LCB solution supports. One of the most important added functionalities of the LCB universal load cell digitizer is its compatibility with the open industrial Ethernet CC Link IE for efficient data exchange. Specifically, this solution uses the popular CC Link IE Field Basic protocol. With this protocol, connectivity is realized via the standard Ethernet port and with a transfer speed of 100 MBit/s.

This allows the LCB to communicate with many different system components, for example with the PLCs from international providers. LAUMAS end customers can use this component to implement automated processes, condition monitoring, predictive maintenance and other Industry 4.0 applications with weighing. Additionally, this compatibility paves the way for future integrations and smart, large-scale networked configurations.
