Cardinal MT Retrofit Kits with DC Digital SmartCellsRetrofit Kits

Cardinal Scale’s PDX and MTX load cell kits may be used to retrofit Mettler Toledo™ PowerCell® digital load cells with Cardinal Scale SmartCell® DC series digital load cells. There is no junction box and no power at the scale needed with DC series digital load cells, offering you numerous advantages. These kits convert existing Mettler Toledo™ PowerCell® scales to SmartCell® DC digital load cells and give you access to iSite Cloud-based remote monitoring. The kits include NTEP and OIML legal-for-trade stainless steel, environmentally-sealed DC series digital load cells for years of trouble-free service. The anti-rotation system includes top and bottom cups that allow DC load cells to be interchangeable with Mettler Toledo™ PowerCell® digital load cells. The Cloud-based iSite remote monitoring software comes standard and offers e-mail and/or text alerts to authorized Cardinal Scale dealers, ensuring your scale is performing at all times during peak operations.


Plug-and-play digital load cell interconnect cables are included in the kits. They feature internal metal sheathing for rodent protection. The quick-connect cables form a watertight seal quickly and easily.

The top and bottom cups are CNC machined and precipitation hardened to a minimum of 40 Rockwell C to allow the integration of DC load cells into a scale that originally used a MTX or PDX load cell. These stainless steel cups maintain the effectiveness of Cardinal Scale’s anti-rotation mechanism while working with the MTX or PDX mounting arrangements.

Cardinal Scale’s patented software algorithm called SmartCal® allows a single technician to calibrate a scale by placing a test weight over each load cell only once. You simply move the test weight over a load cell, press a key, then repeat for the remaining load cells and you’ve calibrated the scale. This means one step: calibrate and trim in one pass!

The Cloud-based iSite remote monitoring software comes standard with all SmartCell-enabled scales and offers e-mail and/or text alerts to authorized Cardinal Scale dealers, ensuring your scale is performing at all times during peak operations. Cardinal Scale’s optional 225D Navigator weight indicator provides truck ID numbers and truck tares, plus diagnostic readouts onscreen for individual load cells connected to SmartCells.
