Rodent Protected Loadcell
Rats, Mice, Squirrels and Rabbits are known to chew loadcell and indicator cables and can cause significant wiring damage that often requires a complete loadcell replacement. Even if the wire is only slightly damaged this can lead to inaccurate weighing results and unreliable performance.
Farmers have found that after adding rodent protection, scale downtime and loadcell replacements due to damaged cables are greatly reduced as the rodents no longer have access to the vulnerable cable.

Rodent Protected WeighbridgeWith thick steel conduit protecting the indicator cable and almost all of the loadcell cable safely enclosed within the platform channel, rodents are discouraged from chewing the wiring and scale downtime is greatly reduced.
