Keytroller raises the bar with highly accurate hydraulic forklift scale

PRECISE Hi-Accuracy Scale achieves 0.2 percent maximum deviation

Keytroller has set a new standard in forklift weighing with the introduction of  what the company is calling the most accurate hydraulic scale on the market. The PRECISE Hi-Accuracy Forklift Scale offers weighing precision nearly as accurate as carriage or fork load cell scales, but at half the cost. Additionally, the product is water resistant and designed to withstand tough, abusive applications such as those in recycling and waste management.

The PRECISE Hi-Accuracy Forklift Scale is equipped with a 4.3 inch colour LCD touchscreen and solenoid operated bypass module, enabling it to achieve the highest accuracy reading of any hydraulic scale on the market.

Simple operation

When an operator is ready to weigh a load, he/she raises the load to the level of the magnetic sensor, which beeps, alerting him/her to start the weighing process.

When the weighing process begins, a horizontal line on the display gives the operator a reference as to the load’s full-capacity percentage for the forklift.

When a load picked is above the preprogrammed full-capacity percentage threshold, the unit will warn the operator. If the overload continues, an external siren alarm will sound. The devise will automatically store the time and date of the previous 10 overload events in the memory log.

How it works:

Hydraulic fluid under pressure bypasses through the module, past the sensor, where it samples hundreds of pressure readings. This process removes the majority of pressure inaccuracy that is associated with single reading conventional hydraulic scales. This technology enables the product to maintain a 0.2 percent maximum deviation.

Key functions

Users are able to name up to 100 different channels, such as aluminum scrap, XYZ Inc, etc., as well as totalize each channel’s gross weight, tare (container weight) and net weight. Further, an operator can input a reference to each weighment (such as PO#, invoice#, customer name, etc.). Each channel stores up to 1400 events with independent identifiers entered for each weighment.

Users can remove the weighing data with a USB stick, or by removing the SD memory card. Weighing event log data is time and date stamped and can be exported to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, where the data can be manipulated into reports, graphs and charts.

Keytroller offers a tabletop demonstration kit, which allows qualified buyers to evaluate the quality, design, features and capabilities of the PRECISE Hi-Accuracy Forklift Scale.
