An Introduction to Wireless Crane Scales

If you are searching for a safer way to properly load the cranes, a wireless crane scale can be the best option for you. Wireless crane scales help you to measure the loads in real-time as well as alert you about the overload condition If you also want to keep a track of the total mass transferred to the material hopper through a crane, a wireless crane scale can help you in this purpose. This system not only offers accurate mass measurement but also can tally the results. This article will offer you some essential insights into the wireless crane scales.

What Are Wireless Crane Scales?

Wireless crane scales are strain gauge-based devices that help to measure weight and prevent overload and take place below the hook of a crane. If a wireless crane scale is properly applied, it can save the time and money of a business and improve safety. In order to verify the amount of moving material for repeatability, quality, and safety purposes, the attachment of this device takes place between a crane and its load. 

The crucial elements of a wireless crane scale are long-lasting batteries, RF or Bluetooth protocols to transmit data. Therefore, this device does not include any cable to snag. During the use of this device, the device displays the mass as well as transmits the data to a computer or a handled unit in order for data archival.

Applications of Wireless Crane Scales:

Wireless crane scales bring virtual benefits to the industries. Whether it’s about evaluating the weights of the catch on the fishing vessel or ensuring safety in a concert hall during lifting lights and speakers, these devices are useful. The three most significant uses of wireless crane scales are integrating weighing into prevailing processes, ensuring safety during lifting, and coordinating complicated lifting and tracking the results. 

The operator must have a clear idea about the load in the case of lifting heavy objects. As standard lifting equipment can not measure the load in real-time, it can result in overload conditions. If the device reaches overload conditions, this can most likely lead to failure of the lifting apparatus and that may cause injury, death, or equipment damage. The most unfortunate thing is that it is hard to spot the overload conditions. Overload can also occur on a cable, chain, or shackle and this can also lead to fatigue failure. 

In some cases, a crane can be utilized as an intermediatory step between two processes. For instance, for melting, a scrap metal is used to charge an arc steel furnace, and, in this case, a crane is used to carry the shredded metal towards the furnace. Therefore, if you do not measure the load of the crane, the furnace can be stuffed by volume rather than by mass. This will lead to different results. 

The major industries that use the wireless crane scales are oil and gas, manufacturing, aerospace, foundries, offshore drilling, utilities, ports and shipping, wind turbine installation, entertainment, and many more. Therefore, wireless crane scales are suitable for different types of applications.
