The BroadWeigh wireless load monitoring technology for stage and live performance technicians is to be exhibited at the Prolight + Sound conference in Frankfurt 15th-18th April 2015
UK based instrumentation specialist Mantracourt has announced that its BroadWeigh™ wireless load monitoring system is to be exhibited at the Prolight + Sound conference in Frankfurt, Germany, 15th-18th April 2015.
Mantracourt’s technical partners AC Entertainment (Hall 9, Stand D47), Hof Alutec (Hall 9, Stand D60) and Louis Reyners (Hall 9, Stand E95) will be exhibiting at this event and visitors will have the opportunity to experience a full demonstration of the BroadWeigh system and meet key staff from Mantracourt.
The BroadWeigh portable wireless system offers real-time, simple, effective and accurate load monitoring for rigging professionals, safety officials and site managers enabling them to monitor and log the precise loads on any given rigging point.
“We are very pleased to be attending this show,” said Kelly Voysey, Marketing Manager. “The entertainment sector is an important market for us as our technology is ideally suited to many of the technical and safety challenges that stage managers and rigging technicians currently face.”
Central to the design of the BroadWeigh system are Crosby shackles equipped with a high accuracy, wireless load pin that reports data remotely to a computer or a handheld display. The system is able to monitor multiple load cells and can trigger an alarm should a load exceed a preset parameter.
“The BroadWeigh logging software (BW-LOG100) provides a powerful tool for the collection, visualization and analysis of the data generated by the wireless load shackles,” said Jonathan Purdue, Sales Manager at Mantracourt. “Furthermore, the software reports in real-time, so that changes can be monitored and overloads can be avoided.”
The BroadWeigh system is increasingly being seen as a cost effective solution for entertainment venues, touring companies and production suppliers, to provide essential measurements of force helping operatives eliminate overload risks. The BroadWeigh system has been developed in conjunction with entertainment industry professionals for real world work environments.
