PROTOS, Load Monitoring System Company Launched


This year of July saw the birth of a new company specializing in load and force monitoring systems for the entertainment industry. The Dutch based company called PROTOS, meaning 'first' or freely interpreted 'the best' in ancient Greek is off to a powerful start due to their state-of-the-art equipment, service and competitive pricing policy.

"The entertainment industry is constantly and quickly developing to keep up with the latest developments. While the audience's hunger for state-of-the-art shows keeps growing. Concerts, plays and shows are constantly evolving, and it seems like each iteration has to be more spectacular than the last." says Jasper van der Sluis, director and co-owner of PROTOS, along with his brother Cor van der Sluis. "Through our work with Prolyte and Doughty Asia Pacific and Prolyte Doughty Japan we have noticed a strongly growing demand for force measuring equipment on a global scale. A demand for a system that is easy to set up, understand and above all, a system that ensures a safe working environment."

PROTOS was founded to cater to these needs. Because of the unique features of the force monitoring systems, in conjunction with the global service they offer, the newly established company has already acquired partners in various countries around the world such as Holland, China, Canada, Australia, India and counting.

Being able to measure the load that you're lifting is essential to be able to provide safe working conditions. To protect people and expensive equipment, not only for temporary structures but also arenas and other venues that host shows on a regular basis. For this reason, PROTOS offers both wireless and wired force measuring solutions.

The brothers went on to explain that the system is incredibly easy to set up and maintain and that further product development is a major focus for the company. “We are still expanding the load measuring system by adding functionality based on feedback from the industry. We're currently working on a cloud service that, among other things, will make it possible to send (overload) messages remotely to any device connected to the cloud, mobile or otherwise." added Cor van der Sluis.
