All cranes, derricks and certain lift equipment require some form of boom angle
indication. Boom angle
indicators are normally mounted on the boom, visually readable by the
Being in the lift equipment industry (cranes, material handlers, off-road forklifts, and aerial ladders to name a few) you're already familiar with our 4120 Boom Angle Indicator - best known for it's unique multi-view design and rugged all-weather construction.
However Rieker also makes a back lit version of the 4120 (first introduced in the early '90's) and the RDI Digital backlit LCD Display Boom Angle Indicator! Each provide boom angle indication in a highly visible way, with the RDI also providing adjustable LED trip angle settings for an advanced visual warning to the operator. Also available is a version of the digital RDI with an audible alarm.
Rieker Boom Angle Indicators comply with OSHA regulations for Construction Equipment - relating to Cranes and Derricks (lift equipment with a boom).
Highly visible backlit mechanical boom angle indicator for increased safety -
complies with National
Fire Protection Association 1901 Standards for Automotive
| A mechanical type
inclinometer usually has degree numbers from -20 to +85 degrees.
The numbers should
remain clean and visually readable at all time. The capacities that are listed
on the crane load charts are
also based on and vary with the boom angle of the crane.
Available in a highly visible backlit model for increased safety, Rieker's 4120 boom angle
indicator is not affected by outdoor
elements. These instruments are made tough and will not rust, freeze, or
otherwise "hang up" like old fashioned pendulum style boom angle indicators.
Like all of our instruments, each boom angle indicator is properly dampened for
smooth reliable readings. Designed for easy mounting - only two screws - allows for quick and
efficient OEM installation, and well suited for retro-fitting in the field.
