Genie announces tool kit for Load Sense calibration

Handy kit simplifies and speeds up load testing in Genie boom lifts

A new calibration tool kit available from Genie Parts includes everything service personnel need to make it easier and faster to do a full load calibration test of Genie boom lifts equipped with digital Load Sense.

The Load Sense Calibration Kit is expected to be available in the EMEARI Region (Europe, Middle East, Africa, Russia & India) before the end of 2021.

Genie’s digital Load Sense was first introduced in 2017 and has no linkages, no springs and no actuating parts for a simple and rugged design. It continuously monitors the weight in the platform and adjusts the operating envelope according to the boom lift’s load chart.

Amalija Kopac, Genie product manager, said: “Now, testing the Load Sense system — part of the machine’s annual inspection — is getting even easier and quicker with the introduction of a new calibration tool kit. The Genie calibration tool kit delivers the ability to conduct the full load calibration without the hassle of putting physical weights in the platform, which can be time consuming. Using the kit, testing and calibration can now be performed in less than 10 minutes by one person.”

In addition to testing the load sense system as part of the annual inspection, if a platform component is replaced due to damage, a zero-load calibration can be performed to verify that Load Sense is operating correctly. By following 10 simple steps and using the kit, zero load calibration can be completed in as little as 30 seconds.

The kit, which will be available globally and is compatible with most Genie boom lifts equipped with the digital load sense system, includes approved rigging, scale, chain hoist, and instruction manual — all contained in a portable carrying case. The chain hoist is used to put tension on the scale to apply the appropriate calibration weight.
