Weighing ProductsPracticon Weighing Products

Our electronic weighing products use the latest integrated circuit technology and embedded software to ensure smart functionality, product reliability and price competitiveness.

Load Cell Signal Conditioning

Each product connects with one or more sets of strain gauge load cells from which it derives a high resolution, filtered and calibrated weight signal for transmission, display or internal use e.g. for built in weighing control algorithms.

Signal Transmission and Industrial Network Protocols

Whilst maintaining support for industry standard analogue (0-10V, 0-20mA and 4-20mA) signal transmission our instruments also interface seamlessly to sophisticated process control solutions using a broad range of fieldbus communication protocols such as Profibus DP, DeviceNet, Ethernet, Modbus or Serial RS232/RS485.

Protective Enclosures

Our instruments are offered using a range of enclosure types to meet the demands of even the most harsh operating environments e.g. IP66 wall mount, IP65 panel mount and DIN rail for internal mounting in control panels and boxes.

Customised and ‘Badged’ Solutions

As we have total control over the design of the instrumentation we supply we are able to offer economical customised solutions, based on our core product range and extensive design portfolio. Our experienced design and development engineers work closely with the customer to provide tailor made instrumentation to meet the application requirements in every detail.

We are also able to offer ‘badged’ versions of our entire range, incorporating the customer company logo and colour scheme in to the product design, allowing the instrumentation to integrate seamlessly into the complete weighing system.

A Knowledgeable and Dedicated Team Supplying a Global Market

Practicon Weighing Products have spent more than 35 years building relationships with many of the leading distributors and OEM’s (Original Equipment Manufacturers) across the globe. During this time we have built a reputation for supplying well designed reliable products and providing outstanding customer service.

This level of customer service is only possible due to our dedicated team of technical sales, hardware and software development engineers and manufacturing and test technicians who are on hand every step of the way to provide the support you require from initial enquiry, through to supply and after sales support.

The relationships we build with our customers have allowed us to combine the constant feedback of industry requirements with our own technical expertise to continuously develop innovative industry leading products, as can be seen from the extensive range we manufacture today.

Quality Manufacturing, Test and Repair Facilities

At Practicon Weighing Products we understand the impact of manufacturing downtime resulting from unreliable instrumentation. Each and every unit that we supply is rigorously tested by our experienced team of QA (Quality Assurance) technicians under varying environmental conditions and using extensive data logging equipment to ensure consistent operation within specification. In conjunction with this guarantee of reliability our products are supplied with 1 year warranty cover.

Should one of our instruments require attention once in the field we offer a very competitive repair, refurbishment and upgrade service, again backed up by our team of experienced technicians, ensuring fast turnaround to minimise potential downtime.
