A World-Renowned Wireless Crane Scale


The MSI-6260CS RF is a key member of the MSI CellScale™ product family and a world-renowned industrial grade crane scale featuring RF wireless connectivity with nearly all types of plant information systems. When networked with other CellScale components, the MSI- 6260CS provides enhanced system solutions for advanced wireless data collection and transfer in industrial material weighing as well as process control applications.

MSI-6260CS integrated with CellScale technology enables single or multiple crane scales to be controlled and monitored safely and efficiently from MSI’s RF remote indicators MSI-9850 and MSI-9750A. Wireless, real-time transmission of weight and product information may be processed through a system-configured network of CellScale components from distances up to 1000 feet (300m). Operating ranges can be further increased when optional long-range antennas are configured with other networked CellScale components. Both fixed and handheld digital weight indicators are available as well as RF modems for wireless connectivity to peripheral computers and scoreboards. Optional 802.11b/g Ethernet connectivity is also supported for adaptation with existing plant information systems.

Ideal for use in demanding industrial applications and environments, the MSI-6260CS is available in a standard range of capacities up to 50 tons. Larger capacity and application specific designs are also available on request. All electronics are securely shock mounted in a robust NEMA 4/IP66 marine grade enclosure. Additional options are also available for mill and foundry use over high-temperature ladle installations.

Also see specifications for other CellScale family components complementing the MSI-6260CS including: MSI-9750A, MSI-9850, RF indicators, MSI-9000, MSI-9020, RF scoreboards and MSI-9300 and MSI-9300HT crane scales. The MSI-9300 and MSI-9300HT provide all of the same features and benefits of the MSI-6260CS plus an integrated digital display and fixed hook options for use with powered rotating hooks or special installations. MSI CellScale products provide configurable system solutions to satisfy nearly any wireless weighing application.
