The ‘CHAIN LOAD CELL SYSTEM’ is a simple and versatile scale that is suitable for most forklifts, reach trucks, stock pickers and side loaders.

The system is capable of sensing weight with an amazing ±0.5% accuracy of machine capacity. This information is displayed on your choice of indicator:

Safe Weigh Indicator - our entry level digital indicator with basic functionality

Weight Master Totaliser - our premium digital indicator with numerous functions such as add in, subtract out, total and auto add

With this scale fitted to your machines, the operator can get an instant weight reading of any lifted load, meaning no need to deviate from their working path to weigh loads on a platform scale or weighbridge. The ‘Chain Sensor System’ is compatible with a range of peripheral devices such as printers and safety devices including alarms and lock out devices to help improve safe operation in the workplace.

Enjoy the benefits of installing the ‘Chain Sensor System’ to your machines, including:

  • Improved safety and adhere to CoR & SOLAS standards
  • Quicker and more efficient materials handling
  • Eliminate overload fines on loaded trucks
  • Check consignment weights and incoming/outgoing goods
  • Avoid trips to the weighbridge or platform scales
  • Prevent machinery and racking overloading

The ‘Chain Sensor System’ load cell is fitted as a replacement link in the lifting chains of the forklift. When a load is lifted, the load cell senses the tension in the chain and sends data to the indicator mounted near the controls. A weight reading is then displayed on the indicator for the operator to view.

This system can be paired with either a “Safe Weigh” indicator or a “Weight Master Totaliser” indicator.

Blue Tongue 2.0 Printer Produce hard copies of your weight readings with this compact printer. Comes with a swivel mount allowing easy mounting in your cabin. It is hardwired to your machine so no need to ever change batteries.
Hydraulic Bypass The ultimate safeguard against overloading you forklift. When a lifted load exceeds the forklifts safe working load, the forklift will stop lifting - only allowing the load to be lowered. The capacity ratings are adjusted based on load centre principle
Red Light / Overload Alarm A red light and/or audible alarm can be fitted to your scale as an extra safety device. These features are activated when the forklift exceeds the safe working load to alert the operator.
