Wireless Load Cells from Sensy



Sensy S.A. (Belgium) - Sensy, which has a wide range of standard force transducers and weighing load cells, has announced recently that they can also offer custom-made solutions for which SENSY is well-known worldwide. One of these customised solutions is the implementation of a wireless force sensor. Sensy equips their sensors with a wireless transmitter to pick up the signal on a portable indicator, a display, a PC (via a USB interface), etc. The diagram below summarises the standard possibilities, although ‘multi-sensor combinations’ are also possible.



The most important advantages of wireless sensors are:

  • Quick and easy to install and uninstall the sensors on-site.
  • Sensors are plug and play.
  • Our wireless technology has a high degree of autonomy even at long range

A more concrete example is the wireless force transducer SENSY 5000. This sensor can be used with an instrumented shackle, as shown in the first picture above. This instrumented shackle, equipped with wireless sensors, can be used as a load indicator in various industrial sectors and environments (gas, oil, offshore and heavy industry).

Characteristics of the force sensor illustrated are:
  • Sensors + wireless
  • Capacity: from 1 to 400 t
  • Breaking load: 200...500%
  • Accuracy class: 1%
  • Certification: IP 67 M
  • Wireless range: > 100 m
  • Battery life: 1 month to 5 years (depending on use)
