Original Press Release:
Forklift Overload Warning-Alarm Device
KEYTROLLER's WEIGHALERT provides a forklift operator a visual (flash) and audible (beep) warning at the approach of unsafe overload condition. When the forklift is overloaded, the beep goes solid. This significantly improves load handling safety in yard and warehouse operations where loads frequently approach the full lifting capacity of the forklift. In addition to the warning and alarm, the operator can see the % of full capacity load that is currently on the forklift. This is shown in a number % and a bar graph for easy viewing. This gives the operator more information on how to handle the current load in corners, up/down ramps and for high stacking. There is an optional LED light bar that can be mounted to eye level making it obvious for a driver the overloading of the forklift. WEIGHALERT increases forklift safety by warning operator as he approaches unsafe overload condition. This allows the operator to "back off" and either lighten the load or get a larger capacity forklift to do the job. The number of overload events are stored in the device for viewing later by a supervisor from the LCD screen. The device is calibrated to 0 weight on the forks and then to a full capacity weight on the forks. The device maintains accuracy; requires no periodic re-calibration or servicing while maintaining full lifting capacity and driver visibility. WE IGHAL E RT is hydraulic and can be installed on any make or model forklift of any lifting capacity. It has an IP67 waterproof enclosure so it can be mounted externally in tough weather conditions. If you have problems with overloading of forklifts-- WE IGHAL E RT will give your drivers data to prevent overloads and make them accountable if they do. Available from better equipment dealers worldwide. For more information view website: www.keytroller.com or contact KEYTROLLER, LLC. 813-877-4500 or email: [email protected]
