It is recommended that suitable transit protection devices are provided for weighing technology systems to protect the load cell. Vibrations during transport can also lead to the described, partly extreme pulse loading of the load cells and therefore to their failure. Where possible, load cells should only be mounted at the final installation site of the system. In this case, a placeholder should be inserted in the system in place of the load cell. Dummies with the same external dimension of the load cell have been proven to be suitable. If this is not possible, thick sheet metal can also be used in this case as intentional force shunts.
