The horizontal pin of the hook set, incorporates a load cell that measures the pulling tension in an analogue values (mV).
These values, generated by the load borne by the device, are transmitted to a communication box, which transforms and sends the data to the central control station, converting the value into Tonnes and represents it using specific data control software in order to view it in SCADA
Optionally, warning elements can be installed next to the hookstation. Those can be:
- Pilots in the front of the local control and power panel
- A small LCD screen in the front of the local control and power panel
- A beacon and horn located on a small mast
