RAVAS-SafeLoad is an aftermarket product for counterbalanced trucks that provides both a weight indication and stability information in a single combined display. The RAVAS-SafeLoad acts as an active load diagram: it calculates with weight, load center point and mast tilt, in order to decide whether a load is lifted safely in the current situation.
RAVAS-SafeLoad: load indication and lift truck stability in one display
The RAVAS-SafeLoad uses information from a hydraulic sensor and a set of sensors that measures the moment forces from load center position and mast tilt, to present stability information in the display. A led bar below the weight display goes from green (safe lifting), via yellow, to red (unsafe lifting: risk of tipping over). The led bar stability indication is enhanced by the color of the weight display (green backlight in safe situations, red backlight in unsafe situations), and by a fork in the weight display that is divided in three segments, one of them blinking to indicate the load center position on the forks.
