Since its foundation in 1969, Eilersen has supplied weighing solutions for food processing installations based on a broad range of high-quality, robust load cells and instrumentation. The Eilersen digital load cell technology is globally patented and has been installed in more than 85 countires worldwide.
Digital load cells
Eilersen digital load cells are based on a capacitive measurement principle where a robust ceramic sensor is mounted inside the load cell body. As the load cells contain no moving parts and the ceramic sensor is not in contact with the load cell body, the load cells tolerate very high overloads, sideloads and torsion.
The Eilersen measurement principle results in robust load cells that can tolerate up to 1,000% overload, which allows for a very simple and hygienic mechanical installation, eliminating the need for maintenance and reducing the total cost of ownership.
Furthermore, the patented digital technology features true plug-and-play electrical installation as the Eilersen load cells are factory calibrated and compensated to ensure the highest accuracy and quality standard on the market. This means commissioning costs are minimised.
Eilersen digital load cells are equipped with a standard single wire coaxial cable (RG-58) and the cable length has no influence on the calibration. The load cells can be equipped with up to 100m cable length and the load cell cable can be mounted and changed on-site if necessary.
The load cells are available with Profibus DP, DeviceNet, EtherNet IP, Modbus ASCII/RTU, RS485/422, RS232, 4-20mA and 0-10 VDC interfaces, and can be supplied in OIML and ATEX-certified versions.
Eilersen also offers a broad line of solutions and components for industrial weighing:
- Weighing indicators with LED and LCD displays
- Modular weighing instrumentation with interface to PLC and PC
- Weighing application software
- Robust floor and platform scales in stainless steel
Robust load cells for conveyer belts and graders
Through the last 25 years, supplying weighing components for conveyer belts and graders in food processing has been a key application for Eilersen. The reason for this is that the Eilersen digital load cells offer robust solutions with high accuracy and no need for maintenance.
The most common installation areas are production lines for processing of meat, poultry, fish and vegetables, and the components can even be installed at freezing temperatures below -40°C for processing of e.g. dry freeze coffee.
Again, the Eilersen load cells are installed without mounting kits, which ensures a simple, hygienic installation without bacteria traps while eliminating the need for maintenance and reducing the total cost of ownership.
Eilersen also supplies weighing components for checkweighers, graders, belt scales and catchweighers.
