Miniature Double Ended Beam

    Miniature Double Ended Beam


    Key Highlights & Features

    • Capacities: 10 - 50t
    • FM approval available
    • High side load tolerance
    • Hermetically sealed available
    • Surge protection optional for 10t to 50t
    • Electroless nickel plated alloy tool steel


    MDB is designed for truck and rail scales in high capacities with a low profile. The design of loading through a ball is insensitive to sideload. MDB is constructed of alloy steel and is fully potted and sealed with special chemical compounds to IP67 providing excellent protection against water and moisture attack. MDB Hermetically-Sealed is constructed to IP68 providing excellent protection against corrosive and washdown environments.
