On the third video of the series, you can watch Vetec's Mechanical Overload Switch in use. Vetec's engineer shows what happens when weight is added and the mechanical overload switch is activated. In this example the switch is activated at 1300kg. Note that the lamp is lit when the overload switch is not activated and turned off when it is activated. An opening to the spring makes it possible to follow the progress in weighing.
