Load too Heavy/Light Error on your Rigging Controller


If you see the "Load Too Heavy" or "Load Too Light" error on your controller this is an error of the load profiling system.

Description/Explanation of Issue

This error occurs when you have Load Profiling turned on for a particular hoist and the load on the batten has changed to be outside the prescribed parameter.


  1. If you have purposefully changed the load you need to update the load profiling or turn it off. See below for a link to the article about setting load profiling. 
  2. If it is by accident- check the batten to see if you have picked up an unintentional load (Load Too Heavy) or landed the load on something (Load Too Light. 
  3. Once the load issue has been remedied. You may need to cycle power on the controller to clear the error.
