Senior engineer James Savoy recently retro fitted a load indicator onto one of Mobicrane’s SMV16-1200B. To do this they installed an additional wiring harness, a XA2 box (input and output board) and a pressure sensor. The team also installed an upgrade of the software on the MD3 screen and calibrated the zero weight and a known weight. This allowed the tonnage to be shown on the screen, read directly from the pressure sensor installed.
Being able to see the tonnage on the screen is of great benefit to operators.
