Higher accuracy industrial onboard weighing solution

Load cell replaces a link in the lifting chain mechanism

The Chain Sensor System is a simple and versatile onboard weigher which is suitable for most forklifts, reach trucks, stock pickers and side loaders. It is more expensive than our standard hydraulic based weighing systems, but the Chain Sensor Systems are the next level up in accuracy – offering up to 0.5% accuracy of machine capacity.

With this system fitted to your machines, you can get an instant weight reading of any lifted load, meaning the operator will no longer need to deviate from their working path to weigh loads on a platform scale or weighbridge.

There are a choice of indicators available to pair with the Chain Sensor System, and a range of peripheral devices to customise the unit to better suit your applications and enhance safety, including; printers, audible alarms and hydraulic bypass systems.

The simple design of this system features no moving parts and requires minimum maintenance which will save you time and money in the long run.
