Towbar Load Cell - Towcell

Towbar load cell TowCellStraightpoint has developed a 25kN, wireless tension load cell specifically engineered for the emergency services, salvage and 4 x 4 industries. The Towcell® allows for increased safety and the avoidance of costly overloads by providing real-time monitoring of tensile towing forces during recovery, clearance and salvage efforts. The Towcell® is rugged, lightweight, compact and can be installed, with ease, onto any tow bar, whether it’s a standard 52mm or 2” ball or pin assembly and is ready to use in seconds.

Modelled after Straightpoint’s best-selling Radiolink plus, the Towcell® is constructed of high quality aircraft grade aluminium, featuring an advanced internal design structure providing the product with an unrivalled strength to weight ratio, and allowing for the use of a separate internal sealed enclosure. This internal sealed enclosure provides the internal electronic components with IP67/NEMA 6 waterproof environmental protection even with the battery cover plate missing.
