RCI is a rated capacity indicator that ensures the safe operation of lifting equipment throughout the machine’s working envelope. The system continually measures the height, radius and load on the machine, allowing operators to work at the maximum lifting capacity whilst remaining within the machine’s safe working load (SWL).
How it works
The RCI enables safe lifting operations through the machine’s working range. The RCI systems is fitted with the XW sensors and hydraulic transducers monitoring the working range at over 100 safety cycles a second and is also fitted with an audible alarm as standard (a requirement by UK law), the system warns the operator should the machine approach its safe working load or user defined height limit.
