  crane load indicator  
equalization pulley fitted with load cell
Equalization Pulley

Digital crane load indicators are simple and easy to fit to cranes, the kit consists off three items

• Digital display with 5 red digits and also contains the electronic controls.

• Remote control unit with the functions ON OFF TARE

• Load pin complete with load cell and cable.

Digital display load indicator has five large red digits 130 mm high which can be read easily from a distance of 100 meters, all the electronics are housed in the load indicator housing (660mm x 230mm x 220mm). Which is suitable for indoors or outdoors installation on cranes. The load indicator is normally mounted on the crane trolley or on the end carriage so that the crane operator on the ground floor can view the readings.

Hand held infrared remote control with the functions ON OFF TARE. This handset also has options of adding memory plus total values and is also available in a bidirectional model with a 5 digit LCD display to show the weight transmitted from the load indicator mounted on the crane via radio.

The load pin easily replaces the existing shaft at the dead end (anchor point) or the equalization pulley, built into the load pin are the strain-gauges for sensing the de-formation of the shaft during lifting of the load. The required length of cable is fitted to the load pin.
