Structural Metal Fabricators, Inc. (SMF) partnered with WIKA Mobile Control (WMC) to install the qSCALE I2 load moment indicator on their 10, 15 and 20 ton boom trucks. This system provides the operator with a display of the current load and geometric information, including the actual and allowable load, boom length, boom angle, and load radius.
“The qSCALE I2 load moment indicator system allows us to provide full service products to our customers in a customized package at an economical price,” said Guy Seifert, owner of SMF.
The system components for this project include a 4.3 inch color graphic display, slew encoder, two pSENS pressure transducers, cSCALE controller, LWG154 cable reel and anti-two block switch.
WMC supplies information, monitoring and control systems that meet OEM and aftermarket requirements in lifting applications.
