Hex-load - Weighing System for Hydraulic Excavators
Hex-Load is a brand new weighing system whose design is based on our Helics weighing safe load limiter. The weighing system determines the position of the lifting hook or bucket with angle sensors on each boom section and the quick coupler. The pressure sensors in the lift cylinders determine the load, compensating for the weight and the centre of gravity of each boom section. Different tools can be selected and it enables very accurate weighing in every configuration.
Current weight and selected tool information is shown on the touchscreen in the cab.
To print the weighing information, a printer can be connected.
All data is stored on an USB drive, which can be transferred to a PC for editing in Excel.
System weighing data can be saved either, automatically by use of a trigger point on the boom section, or manually by the touchscreen.
