Even polar bears need to be weighed...

Our Ron brand of crane scales were involved in a multi-year program that monitors polar bears in the Chukchi Sea.

Information generated from the USFWS-led project has already been used to understand the distribution and habitat use of the region’s polar bears, including the overlap of those habitats with planned oil and gas lease activity.


US and Russian biologists took a variety of measurements from every bear handled, including weight, using Ron brand crane Scales.

Our systems extended temperature range, low weight and long battery life made them a perfect choice for this application.

Other advantages of Ron Crane Scales include:

  • The 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.

  • The Ron systems features 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 2501 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.
