Thanks to state-of-the-art technology and PLC computing power, the patented LASSTEC technology is a unique load surveillance system for precise monitoring and recording of container weights and load eccentricities. LASSTEC’s proprietary technology allows spreader twistlocks to be used as load measuring tools, providing the ultimate safety system in container handling.

Standard spreader twistlocks become ‘smart’ with a sophisticated sensor that measures the load of each corner of the container. The sensor sends the information to a processing unit, which in turn sends the load information to the spreader PLC or directly to the crane PLC. This real-time load information also displays on a screen in the crane cabin, where the driver can read and respond to the load information.

Sensors can be installed on all brands and types of twistlocks. The LASSTEC product includes 4 sensors (or 8 sensors for a twinlift spreader), wiring, and a processing unit with a PLC. Installation can be provided by LASSTEC, its agent or by the customer, based on installation instructions.
