While we may think that the performance is at the forefront of any live event, the truth is that behind-the-scenes safety is just as important. As concerts and other production events become increasingly complex through various dynamic light, audio, and video equipment, which is all often suspended overhead, safety becomes a huge issue.
Newton’s third law of motion states that what goes up must come down; when it comes to event production, it’s important to make sure that all equipment only comes down when it’s supposed to. Proper load distribution, and by extension load monitoring, is one of the most important aspects of maintaining event safety and Ron StageMaster makes it easy with their wireless crane scales.
Eilon Engineering is a leading innovator in the development and manufacturing of advanced load and force measurement systems. They are well-known across all industries for their crane scales, dynamometers, load cells, overload detectors, and their Ron Stagemaster load cell systems for the entertainment industry.
Knowing your load limit is one thing, but effective monitoring is also necessary for maintaining a safe work environment and production. As Entertainment rigging professionals ourselves, the MTN team knows how important load monitoring is to avoid dangerous overload situations. When it comes to accuracy and ease of use, there’s nothing better than Ron StageMaster.
Advantages of Ron StageMaster systems:
At the MTN Shop, you can find the Ron StageMaster Wireless Classic Load Cell and the Ron StageMaster Wireless Shackle Pin Load Cell, as well as receivers, cases, and kits designed to keep your work safe. Continually monitor your loads with their wireless systems compatible for use with a computer or phone/tablet.
The classic load cell is Eilon’s flagship model. These tension load cells are a more economical option with increased accuracy, better linearity and repeatability, and they often enable a lower headroom loss. The Ron StageMaster™ 6000 G4 Wireless Eilon Classic Load Cell offers real-time load monitoring and overload detection with capacities from 1/4 Ton to 6 Tons.
In terms of kits, the StageMaster 6000 G4 Wireless Load Cell is also available with either a standard receiver or a portable receiver. Both kit options include everything you need to get started, including a receiver, load cells, and cases for the load cells. The kit with standard receiver includes a CRR-S receiver that provides real-time identification and location of any overload conditions with either MacOS or a Windows-based laptop.
For an even more portable option, the on StageMaster™ 6000 G4 Wireless Eilon Classic Load Cell Kit includes a model PRR receiver that is Bluetooth compatible with an iPad, iPhone, or Android device. It also includes load cells and load cell cases. The portable receiver is capable of controlling up to 75 load cells.
The Shackle Pin-style Ron StageMaster 6000 load cell offers a different style of pin that offers extremely low headroom and quick installation. They are also weatherproof, making them an ideal choice for outdoor venues exposed to the elements.
As with the classic load cell, we carry shackle pin loadcell kits with both a standard receiver and a portable receiver. These kits come with everything you need to get started and are customizable by the number of channels you need and capacity.
