K-Weigh Elevator Rope Sensor Load Weighing Sensor Kit

from 545.00

K-Tech rope sensor load weighing kits use our new, high capacity sensors mounted to your elevator's ropes (typically 1/2" to 5/8" inch) to measure the weight on your platform or car when loaded with freight or passengers.

The K-Tech rope sensor uses strain gauges mounted to a steel bar which is then pressure fitted to each of your ropes. This sensor bends proportionally to weight when the elevator is loaded with freight or passengers. The sensor comes in a kit with specialized mounting hardware and a sensor interface that allows for four rope sensors to be used at once.

The rope sensor is wired through the interface to an electronic controller box that contains the sensor amplifier, power supply and configuration modules. The amplifier provides circuits to zero the signal from the sensor(s) and provides the necessary signal gain. Setup is achieved with push-buttons and a digital readout. The controller automatically adjusts the zero setting should the signal drift over time do to mechanical creep or temperature changes. The signal from the sensor can be adjusted to subtract tare weight (the weight of the container, ropes, traveler cables, etc) resulting in a weight-only voltage reading. Outputs are configurable for most applications including analog outputs, set points, 4-20 mA, and CanBus (all model specific options).

Features of the rope mount sensor and controller are

  • Rope sensors available for 1/2" to 5/8" (8-16mm) ropes
  • Each sensor has a rated load of 2200 lbs (1000 kg)
  • Rope sensor kits available with four, six, or eight sensors
  • Digital readout for adjustments and monitoring
  • Push-button setup in as little as 5 minutes
  • Setpoints can be adjusted without weights
  • Auto-zeroing for maintenance free operation
  • Field selectable to reflect 'hanging' or 'in-car' weight
  • Outputs configurable for most controllers
  • Field adjustable analog and setpoint systems
  • Custom outputs available built to customer specs including 4-20 mA and CanBus
  • NEMA rated enclosures available

Applications include

Overload notification - Hall call bypass - Anti-nuisance - Motor pre-torque - Lobby dispatch - Heavy load dispatch
