Chain Sensor System

Higher Accuracy Industrial Onboard Weighing Solution

The Load Cell That Replaces A Link In The Lifting Chain Mechanism.

A simple and versatile onboard weigher which is suitable for most forklifts, reach trucks, stock pickers and side loaders. the Chain Sensor System is more expensive than our standard hydraulic based weighing systems with a higher leve 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- 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.

Top Features:
  • Improved safety and adhere to OH&S standards
  • Save time & money
  • Low purchase price and installation costs
  • Eliminate overload fines on loaded trucks
  • Check consignment weights and incoming/outgoing goods
  • Avoid trips to the weighbridge or platform scales
  • Avoid machinery and racking overloading

How it works

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.
