A smart load sensor developed by Sensor Technology, allows weighing processes to be fully integrated with handing operations.

LoadSense, has an on-board single-chip computer for recording, analysing and archiving readings, and wireless communication capability which can transfer data in real time to a host computer.

LoadSense is built around an intelligent load sensor, a hand-held display and a receiver. The load sensor is based on strain gauge technology, and is calibrated as standard in the range of 1-5 tonnes, with other ranges available on request. The transmitter enables load data to be sent to the display which provides real time measurment of the load. The computer also records and processes real-time values.

LoadSense could be wirelessly integrated into a SCADA or Manufacturing Enterprise Systems control system, producing operating reports and e-mailable customer bills.
