Scales Used for Wind Turbines

The Scale People provides high-quality, durable, wired, or wireless crane scales and dynamometers from Eilon Engineering manufacturers for all types of heavy rigging tasks, including installing and maintaining any wind farms. Some safety highlights of our scales include a five-year warranty. All Eilon Engineering load cells are also fatigue-rated according to ASME BTH-1 and IEC 61508. There is also reliable transmission technology with the scales, based on decades of experience with the harsh transmission environments of any NASA launch sites, and 0.1% accuracy for early detection of possible overloads. These scales are manufactured using only high-grade steel for any load cell bodies and shackle holes offset at around 90 degrees, and proven wireless technology is used.

The wireless Ron 2501 dynamometer, which Scale People sells, is particularly suited to the wind power industry. It is the lightest, smallest, and most versatile wireless dynamometer on the market, and its design will ensure that the received and indicated values are 100% of the transmitted value. Its small size makes up for the simple portability and minimal headroom loss. If you would like to learn more about load and weight testing for wind, give the Scale People a visit today!
