Integrated load shackle systems are installed in some of the harshest and extreme conditions to measure tensile (or tension) forces such as those exerted from loads generated in heavy and other plant lifting, rigging, pulling and weighing systems.
Straightpoint industrial shackle load is ideal for applications with low headroom such as event and stage rigging, under hook weighing and water bag weight testing.
Shackle load cell sensors and systems are used for atmospheric force measurement in climates as diverse as severe heat and arid conditions in deserts, humid and wet environments in parts of Asia and the intense cold of polar conditions such as Alaska, the Arctic and Antarctic (north and south poles).
Shackle load cell products used in load systems require connection to appropriate instrumentation, depending on whether Straightpoint instrumentation is connected via cabled, wireless and radio technologies; above-ground, below-ground or in deep sea / other submersible environments.
Designed to monitor and measure in all industrial-scale load systems, heavy duty, medium-sized and smaller scale lifting and tensile force applications, shackle force sensors are available as RFID-tagged loadcells for integration into the Crosby ‘quic-check’ RFID system.
Resultant telemetry linking enables force measurement results output via radio handheld displays over a safe distance. Straightpoint wireless load shackles currently work over a 700-metre / 2300 feet radius.
