Available ATEX and IECEx approved to Ex ia II T4 Ga for use in zones 0, 1 and 2 hazardous environments (gas) and is designed for the on and offshore oil and gas, chemical and other industries with challenging hazardous areas.
The Straightpoint hazardous area range of Load Measurement Pins (LMP’s) are designed for use in applications where an end of line load cell cannot be used an integrated solution is required.
Often a customised solution they are manufactured from high tensile stainless steel and are normally supplied complete with an anti-rotation plate as a wireless solution with range of up to 700m or 2300 feet.
Load data is transmitted wirelessly utilising the latest in IEEE 802.15.4 (2.4 GHz) technology providing safe, high integrity, error free transmission of both static weight and dynamic load to our SW-HHP-ATEX handheld controller for use in hazardous area or wireless Windows PC data logging software package in the safe area. Our wireless data logging software allows for simultaneous control, display and real time data logging of up to 100 Straightpoint telemetry load cells. Logged data is captured in a .csv file format and opens in MS Excel providing easy visual presentation, analysis of logged data, and simple test certificate generation.
This latest range of Loadpins utilise easily sourced Energizer® Ultimate Lithium AA Batteries and features advanced circuitry designed to protect the unit from damage associated with incorrectly installed batteries. This advanced circuitry extends battery life eliminates issues associated with rechargeable battery pack charging, failure and replacement.
Note: Please advise cable configuration on order - Radial or Axial Pin exit. ATEX is only available as a wireless option. If you require an ATEX Wireless Load pin to a particular size and design, download our Load pin Questionnaire and return, POA.
|Typical displacement of a loadpin under full load is around 0.04mm:||Typical lifespan of a 1mv/v loadpin is in excess of 10 billion cycles:|
Loadpin General Description
A load measuring pin senses the force applied across it, via strain gauges installed within a small bore through the centre of the pin. Two grooves are machined into the outer circumference of the pin to define the shear planes, which are located between the forces being measured.
Load Pin Environmental Protection
As the instrumented area of the load pin is totally contained within a small central bore, the load pin sensor is inherently waterproof. Manufactured from special stainless steels, fitted with welded or `O' ring sealed end caps and with special attention to the signal cable glanding, a very high operating reliability can be guaranteed even for load pins operating underwater.
