Compact weighing system uses telemetry link.
The latest weighing system from Applied Measurements Ltd. is one
of the first of its kind to use a telemetry link between the load cell and
the portable digital display instrument, thus eliminating the problems
associated with a long interconnecting cable.
Specifically designed for the measurement of cable tension and under hook
crane and lifting gear weighing, the complete system consists of a robust
load cell with an internal data transmitter with a range of 200 metres, togethe
with a portable, hand-held receiver instrument, displaying the weight digitally.
The load cell is available in ten different ranges from 1 to 500 tonne and
offers excellent performance with a repeatability of <0.05% of rated output.
It has been designed for use with standard lifting shackles and is sealed
to IP66 for waterproofing to withstand arduous outside conditions.
Its weight and height have been kept to a minimum, thereby reducing the
overall headroom required for the installed system.
The portable instrument receives the load cell transmitted signal at typically
420 MHz and displays the weigh value on the 8 character 14 segment LCD
display, over the range of -4999 to 65000. Features on the unit include
a 'hold' control for display storage, and a 'tare' control for automatic zeroing
of the load signal. It operates on a 9V PP3 supply, with auto power down
to conserve battery life.
