Smart Jobsite launches revolutionary Smart Shackle load measuring system for cranes

Smart Jobsite, the pioneering construction app which is dedicated to developing easy to use, reliable and affordable solutions for the construction industry has launched the world’s first mobile-based, accurate load measuring system for cranes.

The truly innovative Smart Shackle is designed to work on smartphones and tablets directly from the jobsite  and provides the operator with an accurate, convenient way to monitor and record the pickup and lifting of objects, providing values directly to the smartphone.

Unlike most current measuring systems, which require a dedicated device to read crane load measurements, Smart Shackle works on iOS and Android smartphones, making it cost-effective and offering a much more efficient way of managing site information.

The measuring system can handle a wealth of data seamlessly, from monitoring and recording picks, tracking times and locations to charting the specific load, type of load and time needed to lift. The information is transferred to the cloud in real-time and can be securely accessed on demand from any device, making it an indispensable asset for supervisors and site managers who need to remotely monitor or report activities on their jobsites. Multiple shackles can be displayed on one or more smartphones, meaning tandem lifts can also be carefully supervised in real-time.

Jean-Charles Delplace, CEO and co-founder of Smart Jobsite explains, “Smart Shackle is a game changer – and that’s not a description we use lightly. We have created an extremely accurate load measuring device that has been designed to be treated as a normal shackle would be, it’s tough, rugged and can be mistreated as normal shackles are. It’s transparent and accountable, meaning the user can quickly, easily and confidently manage critical information such as picks, location of load, type of load and length of lift. It works remotely, can be used to supervise tandem lifts on larger sites, is kilogramme accurate and is virtually indestructible.”

Designed to be virtually indestructible, the Smart Shackle is water resistant up to 20m (IP68), dust resistant, drop resistant up to 5m and it respects the safety factor of 5:1. It has been built using cutting-edge, composite technology sourced from the motor racing industry.

Smart Shackle doesn’t need to be recharged and will last more than 10 years when in use for two hours per day. The smartphone app automatically powers the shackle on and off ensuring extended battery life. For those using the Smart Shackle intensively, a battery replacement service is also available.
