The twistlock sensor is used for weight measurement on spreaders as well as for weighing of containers prior to loading.
For this, the non-measuring twistlocks in the spreader are replaced by measuring twistlocks. The model F9205 twistlock sensor can be installed in almost any conventional twistlock, and this then becomes a force transducer and allows a tensile force measurement and thus weight determination directly on the spreader.
As against the complete TWLMS twistlock system, the model F9205 twistlock sensor is delivered without twistlock. The installation is made by the customer.
The twistlock sensor is made of high-strength, corrosion-resistant 1.4542 stainless steel, whose properties are particularly suitable for the transducer’s application area. As output signals, there is a choice of active current output (4 … 20 mA) and CANopen® and CAN SAE J1939 digital outputs.
