Hydraulic weighing system converts standard forklift into reliable scales

A new, easy to install hydraulic weighing system which includes a weight indicator that displays lock weight for stable viewing and totalizing with recall is being introduced by Alliance Scale, Inc. of Canton, Massachusetts.

The Alliance/Cambridge Ruff-Weigh 50 Hydraulic Weighing System installs in under five hours without proximity switches or welding and adds weighing capability to a forklift.  Featuring an onboard weight indicator with net and gross display modes, full range auto tare, and all pushbutton controls, operators can view the individual weight of a load as well as total weight.

Accurate to within 1–2% error of forklift capacity, the Alliance/Cambridge Ruff-Weigh 50 Hydraulic Weighing System has 1 to 5 points of digital cali-bration with adjustable digital filtering, has an RS232 interface, and runs on 12 vdc.  The aluminum enclosure mounts with a stainless steel bracket and a 15 ft. hydraulic hose equalizes spikes to protect the transducer.
