Higher Accuracy Industrial Onboard Weighing Solution
The Chain Sensor System is a simple and versatile onboard weigher 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 offers a higher level of accuracy – 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- 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 customize 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.

Date, time, gross weight, net weight, tare, number of loads, total, grand total and customised header.
|Pressure diversion system (where fitted)||Hydraulic pressure diversion system suitable for interlocking into main lift ram to stop forklift lifting - only lowering to ground when in overload status.|
|Other options||Wifi, Bluetooth, datalogging, software, links to computers, weigh in motion, relay outputs|
The Chain Sensor System load cell is fitted as a replacement link in the lifting mechanism chain. When a load is lifted, the load cell senses the tension in the chain and sends data to the indicator which displays instant weight reading.
