Can I use the load cells above working temperature?

Jill McGee

ABB's answer

The load cells are designed to withstand the stated temperature ranges at constant run for years.
If higher temperatures are in use the aging process will be speeded up. The weak parts are in this
case mainly associated with the trimming board and electrical isolation. Aging is not linear with
respect to temperature. Deterioration speed will increase slowly at temperatures immediately
above the specified range, and accelerate at higher temperatures. It is therefore not
recommended to extend the use above specified ranges.
