UK - Broadweigh will launch its Bluetooth load monitoring system at the ABTT Theatre Show 2019.
The Broadweigh Bluetooth system makes wireless load monitoring accessible to smaller scale rigging applications. The system will be on display and demonstrated on A.C. Entertainment Technologies' stand D1 at this year’s show.
The Broadweigh 3.25 tonne load shackle with integrated Bluetooth LE 4.0 provides precise multi-channel wireless load monitoring and sends data to the Broadweigh Android and iOS app, which contains all the tools required to configure and display data from the shackles in range.
Kelly Voysey, sales and marketing manager at Mantracourt, who design and manufacture Broadweigh, comments: "We are so excited to be using ABTT as our platform for launching Broadweigh Bluetooth. We believe this new system will be a real game changer for riggers. It delivers a simple system with shorter range and fewer connections than our original kit. Crucial to all of this is that it there is no loss of accuracy, build quality or battery life - it is simply a lower cost option for load monitoring and is ideal for small systems for a rigger's toolkit."
Voysey adds: "For many of our existing and potential customers, the capability of Broadweigh Bluetooth is more than enough. However up until now, they had no option other than to purchase the original system which delivered way more than they may ever need. What we now bring to market is a more affordable system which provides riggers with a handy toolkit for fast monitoring of static loads on a phone or tablet."
Matthew Millward, rigging sales manager at A.C Entertainment Technologies, Broadweigh's UK distributor has already tested the system. He says: "The Bluetooth devices are proving to be very reliable and the battery life is exceptional. Our rigging sales team have been out to demonstrate the system to both existing Broadweigh customers and those who may not have made the investment due to affordability. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive."
