Straightpoint Wireless & Cabled Load Measurement Pins (LMP’s): If your application does not allow an end of line load cell

If you have an application that won’t allow use of an end of line load cell, or you must employ an integrated solution, Straightpoint Loadpins are the perfect solution. These sturdy load pins can be installed to monitor loads where a pin exists within a defined load path or can be fitted to experience a force.

Because of their applications they are often customized: manufactured from 17-4PH stainless steel with an anti-rotation plate as a cabled or wireless solution. Wireless versions are available with hazardous area approval.

Built to withstand the harshest environments in industries such as marine tankers, offshore platforms, bridge support cables, and hoisting gear, Straightpoint Loadpins are reliable in exposed situations and may be manufactured to withstand seawater immersion in extreme depths. As with other Straightpoint load cell solutions, Straightpoint wireless and cabled load measurement pins may be supplied with a wide range of outputs.
