A trip to La Rochelleradiolink plus in use lifting boat
A few weeks ago I was in the lovely La Rochelle, France working with our client Traction Levage. We went over to the port at La Rochelle to assist them in lifting a ship out of the water for maintenance using our radiolink system.boat being lifted out of water with radiolink plus






Wireless Compound Plus Load Cell in use

Check out the great images below sent from our client Lambert Charges in France, they used our wireless compound load cell system with 4-way data logging PC software for crane testing this dockside crane with their unique water weight system. The operator was able to monitor the loads of all four load cells simultaneously on their laptop and log into Excel – all at a wire-free, safe distance.
