By KHL Staff29 September 2020

Crosby|Straightpoint in the UK has launched its multifaceted Insight software that allows users to monitor up to 126 load cells from up to 2,300 feet (700 metres) away, before and during a lift. It is a centre of gravity tool, presented as an all-round load monitoring product offering state-of-the-art technology in four main areas: multi-channel display and data logging; load visualisation; proof load testing; and centre of gravity, the company said.

INSIGHT software allows users to monitor up to 126 load cells from up to 2,300 feet away.

Using the multi-channel display and data logging mode, users can view and log load data from connected individual and multiple load cells, live on screen and directly into a .csv file for later analysis at speeds of up to 200 Hz. The visualisation mode is designed for more complicated lifts and allows import of a photo of the lift in addition to drag and drop load cell displays. In other words, it makes the screen look like the lift. Proof load testing capability allows real-time graphing of load tests and auto-generates test certificates. Insight can be used to weigh and calculate the centre of gravity of large items and structures.

David Mullard, business development manager at Crosby|Straightpoint in the UK, said, ”Each of Insight’s main features represents cutting-edge load monitoring technology in their own right, but what really distinguishes the system is its ability to perform all of those tasks, from multi-channel data logging to centre of gravity, with one single software purchase and wireless dongle.”
