The pressure in the loads cell is measured either by a manometer or a vibrating wire transducer (VWDT-5000) and are available in the following models:
- HLC-6000 – Manometer (scale in kN) for pressure indication
- HLC-6500 – Vibrating wire transducer
Model HLC-6500 can be read with a VW-2106 direct readout or connected into a GeoLogger data acquisition system.
Mounting surfaces should be flat and parallel for optimum performance and the use of very stiff abutment plates and load distribution plates is recommended.
The abutment plate (provided locally) is normally made to suit specific site requirements and the load distribution plate (supplied by Geosense) should be inserted between the load cell and the anchor head.
