Load Cell Cable

Most truck scales have multiple load cells inside the weighing platform. Those load cells have cables. The load cell cable usually connects to the junction box. Then, Load Cell Cable runs from the Junction Box to the Digital Weight Indicator.  As you can see, there are a lot of parts inside the scale that require load cell cable.  Below are some different types of cable available.

EL146 Standard Load Cell Cable, 4 Wire
* 20 AWG tinned copper wire stranded for flexibility
* Braided shielding is encased in red PVC
* All conductors are industry-standard color coded
* Diameter – EL146: 0.25″ (6.4 mm); EL147: 0.29″ (7.4 mm)
* Use the 4-wire cable for repairing or extending existing cable
* Temperature rating -30º C to 80º C (-22º F to 176º F)

EL147 Standard Load Cell Cable, 6 Wire
* 20 AWG tinned copper wire stranded for flexibility
* Braided shielding is encased in red PVC
* All conductors are industry-standard color coded
* Diameter – EL146: 0.25″ (6.4 mm); EL147: 0.29″ (7.4 mm)
* The 6-wire cable is best suited for longer runs where remote sense lines can be used
* Temperature rating -30º C to 80º C (-22º F to 176º F)

EL146HE Hostile Environment Load Cell Cable, 4 Wire
