The heart of the new log weighing system is a compact load sensing element known as a transducer based on ASEA's Pressductor technology and designed specifically for "off the road" trucks and vehicles to measure the precise gross weight, axle load and net load of cargo. No more than the size of a silver dollar, the transducer is brazed to the axle tubes of a vehicle and wired to the load indicator device; a digital display panel containing an electronic microprocessor which measures stress levels and gauges the actual weight of a log on the spot. The ASEA load indicator includes an important safety feature which protects the stacker against accidental overloading. When overloading does occur, the load indicator signals an alarm warning the operator to halt further movement, thus avoiding serious damage to the equipment and injury to the operator. In this age of increasing inflation when products sold by weight require even more accurate measurement, it seems that endless opportunities lie ahead for applications of ASEA's load indicator that will improve product handling, inventory control and safety.
