Digital Weight Force Indicators

The MSI-8004HD has all of the heavy duty versatility of the MSI-8000HD with the added benefit of extreme high visibility in indoor and outdoor applications.

The MSI-8004HD features 1.5-inch high characters on its LED display. The display is available in either red/green or blue, allowing the controller to be clearly visible in many environments. The red/green display can be configured to change color based on weight and setpoint conditions, making the MSI-8004HD a natural fit for safety-critical industrial applications.

The milled anodized aluminum, IP65-rated enclosure is mountable in either a direct panel mount or included tilt stand. Strainsert’s digital weight indicators have advanced electronics and simple interface make it easy to set up and operate. It is designed to perform effectively in tough environments.


The digital load indicators can also be combined with other Strainsert components into a fully comprehensive force measurement system. Please request information on or have an application engineer give you a call. Strainsert looks forward to assisting you.
