Ron crane scales now have Bluetooth-compatibility

Israel-based weighing systems manufacturer Eilon Engineering is to launch new Bluetooth-compatible Ron crane scales at CeMAT 2016.

The Ron crane scales portable radio receiver (PRR) is a compact and portable Bluetooth-compatible crane scale system for either single or multiple point load monitoring. The user-friendly crane scale system can be used from the convenience of an iPad or iPhone using the Ron crane scales app, the company said.

Users can view measurements from a single crane or hoist from a smartphone or tablet. The load cell transmits measurements over radio frequency (RF) to the portable receiver, which transmits them via Bluetooth to the smartphone or tablet.

Single point lifting system advantages:

  • 0.1% accuracy
  • Light weight and portable
  • Heavy duty designs with shock absorbing mechanisms
  • High-grade aerospace steel for load cell bodies
  • Shackle holes offset 90 degrees to reduce external moment for increased safety and accuracy
  • Battery life of up to 2000 hours on common disposable batteries (optional: up to 4000 hours)
  • Small size ensures minimal headroom loss
  • Fatigue-rated load cells

The system allows measurements to be viewed from two points individually - as well as the sum of their loads - from a smartphone or tablet. Loads can then be displayed as a real-time load map.

Dual/multi-point lifting system advantages:

  • Bluetooth compatibility with iPhones/iPads (no Wi-Fi required)
  • 0.1% accuracy with Eilon Classic load cells
  • Continuous load monitoring
  • Unbeatable standard battery life of up to 5,000 hours
  • Extreme range of up to several km/miles
  • Up to 200 load cells per monitoring station
  • Integration of wireless and wired systems
  • Fatigue-rated load cells

Visitors to the upcoming CeMAT trade show in Hannover can get a closer look at the Ron crane scales PRR from 31 May to 3 June at Eilon Stand E66/1 Hall 27.
