Wind Turbines

The wind industry is growing faster and faster worldwide, and wind turbines are going up all over the place. Sales of Ron Crane Scales by Eilon Engineering have grown proportionately.

Ron Crane Scales, dynamometers and load cells are being used in the worldwide wind power industry, mainly during installation, cable tension monitoring, overload prevention, maintenance of existing turbines including proof load testing of a wind turbine’s motorized hoist.

Additional applications include weighing and balancing of blades, measuring tension on tower guy wires, and blade-bearing inspection.

With over 40 years of development and worldwide sales of Ron Crane Scales, we are proud of thousands of repeat customers like NASA, Boeing, Ball aerospace, United Launch Alliance and Lockheed Martin.

Our wind industry customers include: Vestas, Suzlon, Siemens. GE and more.

Ron Crane Scales hold many advantages that make them especially suitable for wind turbine applications:

  • Ron Crane Scales and Dynamometers are exceptionally small, light and advanced with long range and built in transmission verification mechanism.

  • Special perpendicular design neutralizes bending of the load cell, increasing accuracy and safety.

  • Featuring fatigue rated load cells with high accuracy (0.1% of full scale), the small dimensions of these  crane scales and dynamometers ensure low headroom loss and portability.

  • Ron systems feature an exceptionally long battery life: up to 2000 hours or 4000 hours (with added option) on AA disposable batteries.

  • Ron load cells can be purchased as part of a multi-point system capable of collecting measurement from up to 200 load cells.

  • Ron Crane Scales and dynamometers are made of high quality aerospace steel and electronics are installed dampening mounts, for increased durability, making the Ron brand scales suitable for harsh environment applications.

  • Separation of load cell and display increases longevity while increasing personal safety.

  • Ron systems are available with advanced options for communication with additional display as well as logging and downloading of measurements.

  • For the last 40 years Eilon Engineering has been among the leading manufacturers for the global load monitoring market.
