MSI’s Challenger and Port-A-Weigh crane scales have been a staple of the MSI line for decades, popular in industries ranging from petro-chemical and aerospace to agriculture, marine, metals and more. Recently MSI announced that they’ve enhanced functionality of both models to allow use with the new MSI-8000 RF Remote Display.
Adding MSI-8000 RF Remote Display compatibility is a major advantage for these field proven products. The MSI-8000 offers users the added advantage of seeing and controlling weight data wirelessly from a safe distance. The MSI-8000 has been industry tested for reliable use at distances up to 100 feet, and uses a rechargeable battery for a minimum 24 hours of continuous use.
In addition to remote-capability enhancement, the MSI-4260 electronics were completely refreshed from the ground up to include MSI’s exclusive ScaleCore™ technology, their most advanced weight-processor package, that offers improved speed and performance. MSI-4260 now also includes a more durable marine-strength bulkhead casting, and an upgraded display package for better visibility in low-light settings. An upgrade package is available to customers with original MSI-4260 and MSI-3460 equipment.
Fans of MSI’s Dyna-Link 2 Series Tension Dynamometers enthusiastically welcome the MSI-8000, a full-featured remote control and display for operating the dynamometer at safe and convenient distances. In uses like rigging a mobile construction crane, the Dyna-Link would likely be out of view or inaccessible. But the MSI-8000 allows users to see that weight data and control the scale wirelessly, where they haven’t been able to in the past.
Through MSI-8000’s ergonomic keypad and bold 5-digit LCD display, users have complete control over dynamometer function, programmability and operation. A rechargeable battery allows up to 24 hours of continuous, proven RF communication at distances up to 100 feet. The MSI-8000 currently syncs wirelessly with the latest generation of Dyna-Link 2, the MSI-7300, with future connectivity plans for other MSI crane scale products, including the MSI-3460 and MSI-4260 models. Users in the petro-chemical, energy, marine, aerospace, and test and measurement industries will appreciate MSI-8000’s heavy-duty, IP65 shock-resistant housing, as well as a standard RS-232 port that allows for advanced traceability and reporting.
