March 30 - Trimble has introduced the MBR Series Display, which it says can monitor load, wind speed, wind gust, A2B, boom angle, trim angle, list angle, rope payout, rope speed and/or pressure for many crane and lifting applications.

The MBR Series comes in two variations: a handheld, battery-powered version (MBR100), or a cab-mounted, vehicle-powered version (MBR105). Both models can monitor one analog and one digital sensor simultaneously.

Dawn Cirkl
, business area director for Trimble's Lifting Solutions Division, added: "Whether it's an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) wanting to test a machine's design, a crane supervisor wanting to monitor a load, or an inspector certifying a crane during its annual inspection, the MBR Display Series offers a wide variety of applications to suit the needs of our customers in a rugged, pocket-friendly case."
