Weigh Module Selection Guide

What should you look for in a load cell or weighing module assembly?

When selecting a Rice Lake load cell or weigh module, you should consider the surrounding work environment and loading conditions. Based on these and other design specifications, Rice Lake Weighing Systems’ experienced engineering and design staff has created a comprehensive line of Rice Lake weigh modules. Most companies concentrate on one or two types of mounts.

However, we offer over 20 different styles of mounts. Coupled with our outstanding selection of Rice Lake load cells manufactured to the highest quality standards, our mounts come complete with everything you need to get started and the unbeatable service support to help you get it done. 

The wide variety of Rice Lake weigh modules we manufacture and distribute may leave you wondering what the differences are between certain models and, most importantly, which modules are best suited for your needs. We’ve broken down our weigh module selection into three application categories, those being Suspended Weighing, Vessel Weighing and Truck Scale Weighing.
