CRANEWEIGHCRANEWEIGH SENSORSPECIFICATIONVIDEO/BROCHURE
Turn your bridge crane into a scale by adding sensors to your support columns
CraneWeigh turns your bridge crane into a scale, measuring each load before it is placed on the truck.
Bridge crane capacity and stress: All crane capacities can be measured.  The limitation is the stress in the support structure.  Acceptable stress is in the range 1500 to 15,000 lb per sqaure inch.
Crane support structure Structural carbon steel.  Materials such as concrete etc. are not suitable.
Number of sensors: 2 sensors normally required, on opposite crane support columns.
Display type, basic model: Digital weight indicator, as used on commercial scales.
Display accuracy and resolution: Accuracy of weight indicator 0.1%.
Overall system accuracy: Dependent on structure being measured.  Typically ±1% of full scale value.
Optional printer output: RS232 connection to operate a serial printer or computer connection.
Power: 110-250V AC, 50 W max.
Temperature range: Sensors: -40 to +70°C (-40 to +160°F).  Display: 0-50°C (32-120°F).
Indicator construction: ABS plastic, chemical resistant, NEMA-4X.  Not weatherproof.
Indicator size: 10″ wide x 3″ deep x 4″ high.
Certifications:  CE, UL and CUL.  Indicator is NTEP approved but system is not Legal For Trade
