Keytroller introduces its Vanguard hydraulic forklift scale. This new scale is designed to provide accuracy to within 0.2 percent of the rated load (for example, within 10 pounds in a 5,000-pound load). Vanguard achieves this high accuracy by using a hydraulic bypass manifold module that is mounted behind the mast on the forklift's firewall. Hydraulic fluid, under pressure from the load, passes through the module where the pressure sensor reads approximately 150 pressure values in 5 seconds as the load slowly lowers about 20 inches. These pressure readings are then averaged by the device. The manufacturer describes the Vanguard forklift scale as an economical system whose accuracy compares favorably to that of more expensive load cell and carriage scales.
The Vanguard system will log weighing events in up to 99 different channels with as many as 99 different weighing events per channel. The device is standard with an RS232 serial port that exports event log data and prints adhesive or receipt labels. All events can be recorded in pounds or kilograms and are timeand date-stamped with the accurate weight in chronological sequence or channel sequence.
