Advanced Wireless Handheld Display


The BW-HA advanced wireless handheld brings an additional level of portability to the BroadWeigh system by expanding its standalone monitoring capabilities.


  • Wireless handheld display
  • Supports overload and underload warnings for individual shackles, groups of shackles and windspeed sensors.
  • Backlit display makes the device usable in low-light environments.
  • Reads data from any shackle in range
  • Sleep / Wake function
  • Local and remote battery and signal indicators
  • Fully weatherized (IP67)

This device allows users to perform advanced operations with load shackle readings without the need for a PC and a base station.

BW-HA can be configured to one of the following three operational modes:

  • Roaming Inputs

    • Works straight out-of-the-box
    • Shows the nearest shackles with the same radio settings
    • Ideal for walking between different stages with the handheld and picking up readings from all shackles independently of other monitoring systems.

    Pre-Defined Inputs

    • (Up to 24) inputs can be configured separately
    • Shackles can be named and have audible warning levels set

    Summing Groups

    • Shackles can be summed together giving totals for a whole structure and individual trusses
    • The total can be ‘drilled down’ to allow viewing of individual shackle values

    The devices features a backlit display, which makes it usable in low-light environments.

    Broadweigh wireless handheld display BW-HA is powered by a pair of standard alkaline AA batteries and is configured using free BW-Toolkit software which runs on a PC connected to the BroadWeigh base station.
