Shackle load cells transmit measurements wirelessly

02 December 2010

TELSHACK wireless shackle load cells from LCM Systems can be used from 12 tonne to 35 tonne (TELSHACK-D), as well as for applications up to 400 tonne (TELSHACK-B). Both ranges can be supplied with either Crosby or Greenpin shackles, though LCM Systems can also manufacture versions using GN rope shackles for specialised applications. These are available for lifting working loads up to 2,000tonne.

These TELSHACK wireless shackle load cells are constructed from high tensile carbon steel, with the both the shackle and load pin fully certified. Specifically designed for simple operation and ease of use, they have a transmission range of up to 120 metres clear line of sight and are environmentally sealed to IP66.

The housing is supplied with a built-in AAA size rechargeable battery, which can be removed from the shackle for charging, while the shackle itself remains in place. A handheld battery powered display is supplied as standard with the option of a single display that can monitor up to 12 shackles when the load cells are used in a multi-shackle configuration, either individually or for summation/balancing applications.

An optional centralising bobbin can also be supplied to help improve the overall accuracy in critical cable tension applications.
