Straightpoint Launches StageSafe

Entertainment rigging professionals have welcomed the launch of Straightpoint’s latest innovation, StageSafe, a 3t load cell dedicated to the theatre and live events industry.

Via a rocker switch on the load cell unit the user can switch between wired, wireless and off. Other key features include low headroom, accuracy of +/-0.3% of applied load, 700m wireless range and up to 1,200-hour battery life.

Business Development Manager David Mullard anticipates varied demand from use with a single hoist in a show-critical situation on wired mode, to wireless applications with 50 load cells where there is a need to produce a weight report on every truss along with a description of the load.
