Electronic Load Limiter

The LOADGUARD is an electronic load limiter with redundant weight control by reading up to two independent signal inputs, from the load cells or load pins. Its output relays act according the alarm programming, weight differences between channels or system failures. The main applications are in the control and overload protection in lifting equipments, cranes and machinery.




  • In compliance to standard EN 13849-1:2008, PL-d, category 3, corresponding to Safety Integrity Level SIL 2 IEC 62061.
  • 2 weighing inputs for load cells, connected to two independent ADC and two independent microcontrollers.
  • Connection up to 4 load cells of 350 Ω per channel (8 load cells of 700 Ω per channel).
  • 4 control relays: Alarm thershold, pre-alarm thershold, maximum load difference between channels and load cell cable break detection.
  • Display 4 digit 7mm LED and 4 keys for configuration, setting and status messages.
  • Weighing functions: Weight display, full scale and division settings, zero calibration, gain calibration by mass or mV/V, auto-zero, zerotracking and programmable filters.
  • Optionally available with dual 4-20mA analogue outputs, redundant, one per weighing channel.
