With over 45 years in the business, Eilon Engineering has created weighing system solutions across many industries. The flexibility of using a wireless dynamometer allows for you to access your weight measurement data simply and remotely. Optional Pelican Cases also make them extremely portable dynamometers that you can easily transport. All of these features are also backed by an industry leading 5-year warranty. If you are looking to buy a dynamometer, look no further than Eilon Engineering!
Eilon Engineering offers a wide variety of dynamometers. Regardless of your specific needs, there is the perfect product for you. At the most basic level, the Ron 2501S and the Ron 2000S are your options. These offer small lightweight dynamometers with either wired or wireless communication with their hand held indicators. If you are in need of a larger LCD display, the Ron 2125S and the Ron 2150S are the perfect products for your needs.
Those seeking high accuracy, fatigue rated dynamometer need look no further. These versatile dynamometers can be used vertically for general weighing or horizontally for drag force measurement (e.g. bollard pull test, or in any other angle to measure linear tension force.. You can simply tie them into a multi-point monitoring system and easily transport them to different job sites. If you have questions about what Eilon Engineering’s dynamometers can do, feel free to give us a call.
You may be wondering how a dynamometer works. These operate just like most other force measurement devices. Dynamometer load cells operate using the same type of technology as found in a bathroom scale. Utilizing a strain gauge, dynamometers can create electrical signals as forces are applied. This signal can be conditioned, amplified, and converted from an electrical signal to a force or weight.
While the technology itself is similar to many other load measuring devices, Eilon Engineering stands out amongst the masses. Integrated signal conditioning built into fatigue rated crane scales or dynamometers, with a plethora of communication options, and outstanding accuracy takes a common technology and turns it into something really special.
Wireless dynamometers offer several significant benefits. The first and most obvious is that no cable needs to run between the load cell and the indicator, PLC, or data acquisition device. You can just place the dynamometer on your crane’s hook and you are ready to go. You now can communicate with your dynamometer over significant distances (Ask us about our extended range options). This can also allow for you to either create a central monitoring station for multiple cranes or to safely monitor load from a distance on a phone or tablet.
It is also much easier to expand a wireless system than a wired one. With a wired system, you likely have your wires running into some sort of indicator or PLC. You have a limited number of electrical connections on those devices. Once you have reached your maximum connection capacity, you have to buy another PLC or indicator. With a wireless system, you can simply and effortlessly expand your system to monitor more and more dynamometers.
When it comes to a dynamometer, how important is precision? First off, it’s important to understand the difference between precision and accuracy.. Accuracy is how close you can be to real physical value. In the case of a dynamometer, accuracy is how close your measured force is to the actual force that is being experienced. Obviously, high accuracy is very critical to a good measurement system and a safety device.
Precision is how repeatable your measurements are. If you measure the same thing 10 times, you would expect your measurements to all be essentially the same thing. If your measurements all vary quite a bit, then you don’t have a very precise system. Eilon Engineering is proud to offer both high accuracy and high precision dynamometers.
Dynamometers are used in a wide variety of different places. Any time where you are lifting heavy objects or equipment, a dynamometer is a great choice to provide overload prevention or simple weight verification. These are most often used in industries such as foundries, offshore, oil & gas, ports, mines, wind turbine installations, and aerospace. All of these industries benefit from being able to monitor force while moving large objects.
A monitoring system is a great way to check for overload conditions. This can help prevent overload scenarios entirely. In addition, you can quickly and efficiently weight shipments coming in or going out. With the guarantee of a fatigue rated dynamometer from Eilon Engineering, you can rely on your dynamometer for years and years to come.
In the world of dynamometers, there are so many different options. Without being an expert in the industry, it can be very difficult to know what you need. Do I need a wireless dynamometer or will a wired one work fine? What kind of accuracy do I need? What range type of output do I want from my dynamometer?
At Eilon Engineering, we are well aware that not everyone out there is an expert on dynamometers. For many companies, this may be their very first purchase of a crane scale monitoring system. Many people know the task that they need to accomplish but may not be sure about the best ways to go about doing that. There are a lot of small requirements that all need to be met in order to build a reliable and accurate force measurement system. So, leave all of the small details to our experts at Eilon Engineering. With the information that you provide about what you are trying to accomplish, we can pair you up with the perfect product for your needs.
