iForks

RAVAS, The Mobile Scale Company, introduces iForks, the first completely wireless scale for counterbalanced trucks, reach trucks and narrow aisle trucks. Since all components are fully integrated in the forks, the iForks have no external cabling whatsoever and the weighing system can be installed onto any counterbalanced truck in a matter of minutes: plug & weigh! From that moment on, every load lifted by the truck is instantly and accurately weighed.

Resistant for rough use and very compact

Each scale fork communicates the weight lifted with the weight indicator in the cabin via Bluetooth, so completely wireless. The weighing system is powered by robust, exchangeable battery modules. All electronics and power components are exclusively developed by RAVAS for the iForks concept. Which is why they are not only resistant to rough use, but also extremely compact, keeping the fork dimensions (w x h = 5.25 x 2.4 inch) very close to those of standard lift truck forks and making sure that the user does not loose any handling performance.

Completely wireless forklift scale

The iForks weight indicator in the cabin shows the weight of the load on the forks and offers a complete range of weighing functions: gross/net weighing, total weight per shipment, code entry, date/time registration, and piece counting. The indicator can provide weight data transfer to a printer, a data terminal, or directly to a WMS or ERP system, via RS232, or wireless via Bluetooth or WiFi. The display is equipped with backlight, making it perfectly readable even in the darkest corners of a warehouse or production environment. iForks offers Digital Calibration Technology: via the keys of the indicator the scale can be digitally adjusted, quickly and accurately. Which makes for a very maintenance friendly weighing system and low cost of ownership.

User supervises power management himself

The user can supervise the power management of the iForks himself. The weighing system has an  auto-shut-off function which automatically switches off the electronics after a prolonged period of non-use. Via a power management menu on the indicator the user can adjust the auto-shut-off time according to the use and application of the truck.

Wireless scale for fork lift trucks

iForks is available in a legal for trade version. RAVAS iForks received certificate number T2735, for the iForks with a graduation of 1000 parts in 5 lbs steps:

  • iForks 5.0: 0-3000 kg in 5 lb steps, over 3000 kg in 10 lb steps
  • iForks 6.0: (to a fork length of 51 inch, 2 load cells per fork) 0-3000 in 5 lb steps, over 3000 lb,  in 10 lb steps;
  • iForks 10.0: (to a fork length of 51 inch, 2 load cells per fork) 0-10,000 in 10 lb steps (10-ton lbs load cells).

Data communication and printing

The iForks wireless indicator has an alibi memory. The legal for trade iForks with option Bluetooth output is therefore also certified, which allows data communication and printing with a Bluetooth printer.
