Crane safe load monitoring systems are a vital tool in crane safety. These systems detect the moment of lifting a load, which can be compared to the cranes maximum safe load limit. They typically use load measuring pins that replace existing load bearing pins in the crane header block to sense the load, although in instances where there is not a suitable load bearing pin to replace, below hook measuring solutions can be used.
The system increases operational efficiency and improves safety by providing a tool that alerts the crane operator to imminent excess lifting conditions that may cause harm to personnel and equipment. If the load being lifted exceeds the safe lifting load, either audible or visual alarms can be triggered, or, if part of a control system, that action will automatically stop the lift. Additionally, having a real-time display of the lifted load allows crane operators to lift the maximum allowable amount, improving productivity by reducing the number of lifts required to complete a task.
LCM Systems have supplied hundreds of crane load monitoring systems for all types of cranes, and can supply both the load cell and a range of instrumentation and displays to provide a total solution.
