Rechargeable Crane Scales
What are rechargeable crane scales?
Crane scales are a type of industrial weighing device designed for use with cranes and other overhead lifting equipment. They are capable of weighing large and heavy objects with precision and accuracy. Rechargeable crane scales are those that feature the option of having a rechargeable battery or batteries.
They work just like other kinds of battery-powered crane scales where the scale measures the lifted load, and an indicator displays it, but they allow users to recharge the batteries rather than replace them.
Rechargeable crane scales can be found in both wired and wireless models. In wired models, the crane scale indicator will have rechargeable batteries, while in wireless crane scales, both the indicator and the crane scale’s load cell enclosure will have them.
This can be an important factor in many types of industrial applications where handheld crane scales are used. They can save owners and operators of portable crane scales both time and money.
Benefits of rechargeable crane scales
There are several benefits to having a rechargeable crane scale. The first and most obvious is that it will save you money in the long run. Even with mobile crane scales that are highly energy efficient, like our Ron Crane Scales, over the course of the system’s lifetime, you may end up spending hundreds or even thousands of dollars on replacement batteries, depending on the application.
For example, the batteries in a Ron system that’s in continuous use will last about two months. If that system is in use for 10 years, that’s 6 sets of batteries every year, or 60 sets over ten years. That can really start to add up! But with a rechargeable crane scale, all you have to do is recharge the battery pack using any standard wall socket, and you’ll be ready to go in no time.
Another benefit is that rechargeable batteries can be quickly and easily recharged, eliminating the time and expense associated with replacing traditional batteries. If you’re weighing in a remote location, you never have to worry about bringing extra batteries. This allows for improved efficiency and productivity.
Having rechargeable batteries can be especially important in cold environments, where batteries tend to become depleted more rapidly. But with rechargeable portable load scales, you’ll have one less thing to worry about. Just plug the battery pack in, recharge, and get back to your weighing application.
Finally, it’s better for the environment since rechargeable batteries generate fewer emissions than disposable batteries, reducing the negative environmental impact of battery-powered crane scales.
Types of Rechargeable Crane Scales
There are many types of portable load scales on the market, and many of them have a rechargeable option. The rechargeable option is all the more important with cordless crane scales, which use more batteries than wired ones.
Eilon Engineering has been a leading manufacturer of high-quality mobile crane scales for more than 45 years. Both our wired and wireless crane scales offer optional rechargeable batteries, including our Ron 2000 and our Ron 2501.
Further, both our Ron 3025 and Ron 3050 crane scales with integrated displays can be equipped with optional rechargeable batteries. This option includes 3 AA NiMH 2700mAH rechargeable batteries in a battery holder and a matching charger, making these models excellent options for cordless crane scales.
Our systems all feature exceptionally long battery life, something you won’t find in most portable crane scales. This means you won’t need to recharge the battery packs very often, an important feature for any battery-powered crane scale.
Choosing the Right Rechargeable Crane Scale
When choosing a wireless weighing system for cranes, there are many factors to consider. First and foremost is quality. High-quality portable crane scales afford their users peace of mind—lifting heavy objects in an industrial application can be dangerous work, and a high-quality scale will help ensure a safe lift. Look for a company with a proven reputation for quality and dependability—you’ll be glad you did.
Next, all battery-operated weighing devices for cranes should be accurate. Look for a system with an accuracy of 0.1% of full scale, like all of our Ron Crane Scale systems. Accuracy is of critical importance both in terms of safety and in terms of business goals. An inaccurate system could lead to costly errors, such as in inventory tracking or other applications.
Third, if you’re looking for a handheld crane scale, you’ll want it to be portable and easy to use. A lightweight, wireless crane scale is a great choice. Portability lets you easily transport your scales to the job site or make changes to the application while on-site. And an easy-to-use system means any team member can learn to use it quickly, saving hassle for everyone. This both saves time and leads to increased safety.
Finally, you’ll want a certified system that’s guaranteed to be safe and dependable.
