rcs oil pressure measurement on fork lift trucks

RCS indicator + sensor

Weighing system for forklift trucks model RAVAS RCS

RAVAS supplies a complete range of truck scales for mounting on forklift trucks. For simple check weighing, where a high accuracy is not required, there is the RCS hydraulic load indication system. An oil pressure sensor is installed onto the hydraulic circuit of the forklift by means of a T-coupling. The RCS indicator in the cabin translates the measurement into a weight indication of the load on the forks. The RCS has a limited accuracy, with a possible error of maximum 2% of the lifting capacity of the truck. The system is meant for simple check weighing, such as the checking of incoming goods, and for avoiding the overloading of lorries, warehouse racking and the forklift truck itself.
