Portable Crane Weighing
Application Summary

Portable cranes often endure the weight of a variety of payloads. Utilizing a robust, high capacity load cell helps operators monitor the weight variations between each load.


Products in Use

A Pancake Load Cell (LCF Series) paired with Instrumentation (IAA Series, IPM650, IHH500, USB Solutions).


How it Works
  1. Operators and industrial engineers often utilize high capacity, robust load cells to provide the critical verification measurements on portable cranes, as these cranes often endure the weight of a variety of payloads.

  2. Installed to the crane's cable, FUTEK's Pancake Load Cell (LCF Series) measures the weight of load, as well as the endurance of the cable as it maneuvers the load.

  3. These measurements can be amplified through an IAA Series Analog Amplifier to a PLC, shown on a digital display (IPM650 or IHH500) or streamed directly to a PC using FUTEK's USB Solutions.

  4. If the instrument is paired with FUTEK's SENSIT™ Test and Measurement Software operators can log, and graph all the data on the PC.
