Measurement Systems International (MSI), Seattle, has launched a new generation of its MSI-4260 and MSI-3460 crane scale models. The company says the new scales can add remote display functionality.

According to MSI, the company’s Challenger and Port-A-Weigh line of crane scales have been enhanced to improve the functionality of both models. The enhancements will allow both models to use MSI’s new MSI-8000 RF remote display.

The company says that adding the MSI-8000 RF remote display compatibility is a major advantage for field-proven products. According to Kyle McKinney, MSI sales representative, adding the MSI-8000 RF Remote Display compatibility is a major advantage for the company’s product lines. “Our MSI-8000 offers users the added advantage of seeing and controlling weight data wirelessly from a safe distance.”

The company notes that the MSI-8000 has been industry tested for reliable use at distances up to 100 feet and uses a rechargeable battery for a minimum 24 hours of continuous use.

The company adds that with the addition of remote-capability enhancements, the MSI-4260 electronics were completely refreshed from the ground up to include MSI’s exclusive ScaleCore technology, the company’s most advanced weight-processor package, which offers improved speed and performance.

The MSI-4260 includes a durable marine-strength bulkhead casting, and an upgraded display package for better visibility in low-light settings. An upgrade package is available to customers with original MSI-4260 and MSI-3460 equipment.
