Crosby Group has updated the Crosby Straightpoint HHP Bluetooth application.


The free-to-download app, initially launched in 2018, connects to Bluetooth load cells with a wireless range of 100 m. The updated version allows the app to connect wirelessly to up to four Bluetooth load cells on a single smartphone, compared with just one with the previous version.

Another feature of the app is the capability to set a lift threshold, which, when triggered, logs the lift. This means that if a user has two cranes working alongside each other, they could see how many lifts per day each one has completed and what the productivity is.

Through a series of updates, the app includes an analogue load indicator on the main screen and is offered in in English, Dutch, Spanish, Norwegian, Japanese, and Chinese. The app also automatically adds GPS coordinates into data logging reports and features updated overload and warning alarms to accommodate manual value entries.

The HHP app is predominately used with the Bluelink, ChainSafe, and Towcell load cells.

Thomas Dietvorst, director of technology solutions, said: “The upgrade enables us to monitor loads in a number of additional applications. Truck haulage with chain lashes will be one of them, for example — a perfect combination with four ChainSafe load cells. We appreciate our network of partners in the industry who have worked with us to bring this next-gen HHP app to life and continue our shared journey of delivering innovative solutions to enhance safety and productivity at jobsites.”
