In the wind power industry, Eilon Engineering load cells, dynamometers and crane scales are increasingly being used during the installation, proof load testing on hoists, hoist overload prevention, and other kinds of wind turbine maintenance, controlled tensioning of underwater power cables, measuring the tension of a tower guy wires, installation, and more.
Eilon Engineering has been developing and manufacturing Ron Crane Scales and dynamometers for more than 40 years. The extensive experience and expertise gathered during hundreds of projects with NASA, Boeing, Lockheed Martin and many others, has been brought to the wind turbine industry.
Ron Crane Scales advanced wireless technology is in use at wind turbine farms worldwide, by customers like GE, Siemens, Vestas, Suzlon and more.
The very long battery life enables continuous in the field use of the our load measuring systems for many months on wind turbines.
Their compact dimensions make Ron Crane Scales and dynamometers into portable systems and easy for use on-site.
Our advanced multi point load monitoring systems enable simultaneous controlled tensioning of the underwater power cables. Our technology allows for monitoring hundreds of load cells on one screen, presented as a real time load map and log months of measurements as downloadable reports.
The load cell’s special perpendicular design with 90 degrees between shackle holes provides another layer of safety to the systems, along with our fatigue rated load cells and the aerospace quality steel that all our load cells are made of.
