Rieker's Digital Boom Angle Indicator Remote
Inclinometer Package (model RDSR3-BA-09) is an extension of the RDI series of
Like the 4120, our electronic boom angle
indicator is sealed in a rugged case that protects the sensor components from
harsh environments. The RDSR3 is supplied as a calibrated set featuring an
environmentally sealed measurement sensor package and a separate LCD display box
(connected by an interface available in various lengths). All of the standard
RDI features have been incorporated into this remote sensing package, modified
specifically to comply with OSHA and other safety regulatory agencies
specifications for Boom Angle Indicators.
The display model comes standard with green,
yellow, and red LED lights (with adjustable trip setting) provide the operator a
bright fast visual warning of safe and unsafe operating conditions. The green
light indicates safe operating zone, yellow as the early warning, and red as the
danger zone. An optional audible alarm model is also available - the red LED on
the front panel display is tied directly to the buzzer.
The RDSR3-BA-09 comes standard with Relative
Zero and Min/Max Angle functions. The Relative Zero allows the operator to
temporarily zero the digital readout to obtain relative slope changes. The
Min/Max function provides the smallest and largest angle since the last reset.

note: A boom angle indicator is a quick reference for the operator
to know what angle the boom is at.
The capacities that are listed
on the crane load charts are
also based on and vary with the boom angle of the crane.
However, do NOT rely on the
boom angle indicator for radius accuracy especially when the lift exceeds 75
percent of the rated capacity. Use the
radius measurement to determine the capacity of the crane from the load charts
and to avoid any possibility of
