Electronic Load Detection System (ELD)
The Electronic Load Detection System provides precise information about the hoist load, speed and cable layer empowering hoist operators to safely and quickly control any lift in real time. Strain gauges, strategically located inside the specially machined anti-rotation flange detect elastic deformation of the flange caused by the applied load torque. The phonic wheel and two proximity sensors monitor the drum rotation direction, speed, and cable quantity at any given moment and in both directions. The resultant data supplies the hoist operator with Line Pull, Line Speed, Hoist Direction and Cable Layer through an electronic interface. It can be used to set Pre Alarms or System shutdowns or simply to log usage data for future maintenance and service requirements.
The Electronic Load Detection System is available on the A Series and S/SE Series of hoists.
