With more than 45 years in the market, Eilon Engineering is a globally recognized leader in the development and manufacturing of high-quality crane scales.
Crane scales are a specific type of industrial weighing device and are designed to be used with cranes or other overhead lifting equipment. By combining precision and accuracy with portability and durability, our Ron crane scales are regularly used in countless weighing and lifting applications around the globe.
Crane scales afford significant advantages over other types of scales, such as platform scales. Because crane scales are more portable, they can be easily transported to the load, rather than having to bring the load to the scale, saving time, money, and increasing on-site safety.
A crane scale also helps clear up valuable floor space, as opposed to a platform scale, which limits floor space. And because of their portable nature, they can be easily transported around the job site.
Crane scales are also great for weighing awkwardly shaped objects, which can be difficult to weigh when using other types of scales. They also help increase safety by allowing the operator and other team members to easily read the display from a safe distance, either with a built-in or remote display.
Crane scale set-up and installation is a breeze, especially when using a wireless model like our Ron 2501 wireless crane scale.

When selecting a crane scale, considering what range you need is critical to a successful measurement system. You will want a crane scale that can accurately measure loads that you would expect to encounter. You will need to consider what the heaviest load you ever expect to measure is and choose something that does not compromise resolution for too much measurement range.
Depending on what you need, our crane scales are highly customizable. Crane scales can be purchased with an analog output, digital RS-232 communications, Bluetooth, or radio frequency. Depending on how you want to access your measurement data, there is a solution for you. If you are planning on using a PLC, a digital display, or a laptop to read your measurement display, Eilon Engineering has a solution for you.
There are a lot of things that you can customize on a Ron Crane Scale. Not only can you choose the data output that you want, but you can customize many other features as well. These features include longer life batteries, pelican cases, data loggers, displays, and much more. We are happy to tailor a crane scale to your company's needs.
If you have questions or are unsure of what to order for your measurement application, then contact our sales staff today. Our team will gladly answer any questions that you have and point you in the right direction on our crane scale products. For tasks both big and small, our team is happy to help you find just what you need.
Ron crane scales are robust and adaptable and can withstand both extreme heat and cold. This flexibility in work environments makes them an excellent choice for companies that need to work in a variety of environments and applications, including offshore ones.
The basic composition of a crane scale is the load cell and the hook. The load cell contains a strain gauge that converts the force placed on the load cell body into a readable measurement. The weight can be displayed in pounds, kilograms, and more via a digital display.
Eilon Engineering offers both wired and wireless crane scale models as well as advanced multi-point systems for complex applications and advanced load monitoring.
All of our crane scale models come standard with the basic functionality you’d expect from a high-quality weighing system, including ZERO, MAX, TARE, and a two-level visual overload warning. And, additional functionalities are also available including manual and automatic data logging, a totalizer to store selected loads, and many more.
At Eilon Engineering, we specialize in crane scale sales of various designs. With more than 45 years of experience, you can rest assured that our products are robust and offer the best solution at competitive prices. Our high-profile customers, such as Siemens, NASA, Cirque du Soleil, Disney, and Boeing attest not only to the high quality of our products but to our customer service as well.

What is a Crane Scale Load Cell?
A load cell is a transducer that converts a force such as tension, compression, pressure, or torque into an electrical signal that can be measured and standardized. As the force applied to the load cell increases, the electrical signal changes proportionally. Although there are many varieties of force sensors, strain gauge load cells are the most commonly used type.
Our load cells are based on a group of strain gauges that generate an analog signal. Our in-house designed electronics convert this into a digital signal which can then be displayed as a force or weight measurement. Measurements can be shown on a wired/wireless handheld indicator, multiple remote displays or on an integrated display. Multiple crane scales' load cells can be used to measure force and weight on complex structures.
Crane scales load cells are generally used in applications where load or weight measurements are required. They can provide an additional layer of safety or add functionality to existing equipment.
Applications of our Crane Scale Load cells
If you’re looking to weigh or measure tension from a suspended load, we have the product that will fit the bill. Please contact us about our overhead crane scale sales. Due to the versatility of our load cells and crane scales, they are suitable for a wide range of uses and environments, such as:.
- Periodic crane safety testing. Perform regular proof test inspections on cranes, hoists, and various load-bearing structures.
- Foundries. Measure the exact amount of molten material in a ladle or crucible.
- Shipment weighing. Determine precise weights for raw materials or finished products.
- Overload prevention. Protect your personnel and equipment from overloads.
- Advanced inventory management
