All of our equipment comes in bespoke cases appropriate for the application. Systems of four or 8 are available in pelli cases, suitable for courier transport. Larger system are available in flightcases suitable for touring applications. All systems are sent out with a selection of different lengths of 6 pin XLR, and appropriate mains cables.
The Load*Cell is the primary component in the Motion Laboratories manufactured weight monitoring system, the Cell*Mate. The stainless steel Load*Cells work in unison with the eight channel Cell*Mate Hub and Cell*Mate Digital Display module, giving users the opportunity to monitor both dynamic and static loads in unlimited quantities, from one or more remote locations.
2-Ton Load*Cells are fitted with standard 5/8″ rigging shackles with a 3/4″ shaft. 5-Ton Load*Cells are fitted with standard 3/4″ rigging shackles with a 7/8″ shaft. Each universal Load*Cell has a 2-Ton or 5-Ton rating with a built-in 5:1 safety factor.
Each Load*Cell transmits inline force measurements to the eight channel hub unit via a 6 Pin XLR cable. The Cell*Mate Hub unit then sends all channels of data to the Cell*Mate Digital Display module via a single 6 Pin XLR cable. This design greatly decreases setup time by eliminating multiple cable home runs.
Spherical bearings at either end allow the Load*Cells to self-align, eliminating side-load interference and providing the most accurate measurements possible.
The eight channel Cell*Mate Hub, combined with the Load*Cell and Cell*Mate Digital Display module, form the most reliable load monitoring system on the market today.
The Cell*Mate Hub gathers data from up to eight Load*Cells and routes it to the Digital Display module via a single 6 Pin XLR cable. The digital signal can be transmitted as far as 4000 feet to the Digital Display module. The Hub requires a separate power input and can accept 120/240VAC through a PowerCon Input Connector.
The Cell*Mate Hub comes complete with a truss clamp, allowing it to be mounted in the rig for flexibility in your setup, which greatly reduces cable clutter by allowing for shorter runs from each Load*Cell. Load Cell Rental Hubs all have a secondary safety bond fitted.
The Cell*Mate Digital Display module allow users the ability to monitor up to eight channels of Load*Cell data simultaneously from a remote location.
Working together with our universal Load*Cell and Cell*Mate Hub, the display module gives users a wide variety of options for viewing load data.
Each channel provides real time weight measurement displayed in pounds or kilograms. Additionally, each channel has a ten-segment multicolor bar graph representing a percentage of load based on a user-selectable weight limit.
There is a 120% overload watchdog function that will trigger both an LED indicator and a normally open set of contacts. These contacts can be used for a buzzer, siren, light etc to warn the user of an overload situation.
The Cell*Mate Digital Display module receives digitized load data from the Cell*Mate Hub via a single 6 Pin XLR cable. Multiple display units can be used in series for additional monitoring locations. The Peak Hold function allows the user to view peak weight statistics for each Load*Cell. A user-adjustable tare function allows the user to view a secondary weight measurement, i.e. the load minus the weight of the hoist. All products in the Cell*Mate family, The WardeN, The Cell*Mate Digital Display module and the Cell*Mate Hub, are designed with auto switching 100/240VAC 50/60 Hz power supplies allowing for versatility in the field.
