Tension Load Cell - Low Headroom Link

low headroom linkStraightpoint introduces its range of low headroom links designed to provide accurate measurement of loads in the most challenging applications where headroom restrictions are a major factor. Constructed from high strength alloy steel and exposed to an array of testing during development, this impressive range of load cells is designed to work with industry standard shackles from manufacturers such as Crosby and Van Beest. Applications include weighing, lifting, force measurement and load monitoring of structures such as lighting trusses, hoist mountings and fly line tensioning.

The unique low headroom design combines the ability to lift loads with capacities up to 30t with state-of-the-art electronics, high accuracy and resolution of over 5000 divisions. Measured loads can be displayed with our Handheld plus digital display/controller or Windows PC Desktop Controller data logging software. A vast array of optional output formats are also available to include mV/V, RS-422, RS-485, utilising the ASCII, MODBUS, TRU and CAN-BUS protocols and analog outputs such as 4-20mA for connection to PLCs, Data Acquisition systems (DAQ) or other required instrumentation.

Usable cable length varies greatly, ranging from 10m/23ft to 1,500m/4900ft depending on output format.
