Junction Box

Standard Junction boxes are used to parralel wire multiple loadcells to add the outputs together to give a total load indication. Usually locally loacated next to the load cells allowing for a single cable to be used to take the signal to the indicators or control system. A variation of the simple junction box is the introduction of the 'Intelligent' Junction box designed to assist engineers in fault finding in vessel weighing system to identify faulty load cells quickly, a spin off from this idea is to have local indication as well, without the need of additional power lines, enabling load monitoring at the vessel by operators or engineers alike. These indicators can also aid installation of loadcells for corner balancing.
