Saelig has launched Loadsense, an intelligent load sensor that can be integrated with a crane hook, a fork lift or another handling device to deliver feedback of loading events.

It features an onboard single-chip computer for recording, analysing and archiving readings and wireless communications to transfer data in real time to a host computer.

Loadsense provides the real-time information needed to optimise efficiency and increase profitability in a range of industrial operations, allowing weight measurement processes to be integrated with handling operations.

All live data is captured in real time and can be transferred to a database, stored, totalled and analysed on the spot.

Internal battery power makes Loadsense’s operation completely autonomous, so it can be deployed with minimal disruption to operations and with no trailing wires.

Loadsense automatically begins transmitting data when used, and no special training is required to install or operate the unit.

The system consists of an intelligent load sensor, a handheld display and a receiver.

The load sensor, with a standard calibration range of 1-10 tonnes, is based on strain-gauge technology (other ranges are available on request).

The transmitter operates on globally accepted 2.4GHz – it does not require a licence to operate – and uses advanced data-secure technologies to enable information to be sent and received error free.

Accurate load data is sent to the handheld display, providing instant and accurate load measurement information.

The loadcell also provides data-logging and storage capabilities for subsequent downloading onto a PC.

Alternatively, the loadcell can communicate directly to a PC via the handheld receiver interface.

Applications include: materials-handling and warehouse operations, where the intelligence will convert raw data into instant stock counts; raising nuclear fuels rods; monitoring window-cleaning cradles on high-rise buildings; winching and weighing building materials; and assessing helicopter loads.

Loadsense can tell the user how much material has been transported, as well as how to weigh and dispense two or more materials simultaneously that need to be accounted individually.

Using Loadsense with a tractor-mounted winch enables an accurate assessment of roadside trees for susceptibility to catastrophic wind damage.

Loadsense can also be configured to monitor and control the flow of liquids.

It can be wirelessly integrated into a Scada or manufacturing control system, enabling instant operating reports and customer billing.

Operating safety is also improved by removing operators from dangerous locations.

Loadsense is made by Sensor Technology.
