Straightpoint Loadshackle Load Cell – Cable Connection

From: £1,178.10

Available from stock in capacities 3.25t to 400t, and available up to 3000t, Straightpoint Loadshackle is manufactured from Crosby’s industry leading 2130 Carbon and 2140 Alloy Bolt Type Anchor Shackles.


The Straightpoint Loadshackle SLB offers reduced overall weight and headroom providing a great fit for low headroom applications.

Utilising the same advanced microprocessor based electronics as all Straightpoint products, Straightpoint’s cabled Loadshackle benefits from high sampling rates, extreme resistance to industrial level noise and unprecedented stability. A huge range of tooling allows Straightpoint to calibrate in shackle for extra accuracy unlike many other load cell manufacturers.

Straightpoint cabled Loadshackles are also environmentally sealed to IP67 and, as an option, sealed for permanent submersion for sub-sea use. The cabled Loadshackle range can be used with digital displays including the Straightpoint Handheld plus, PLCs, data acquisition systems (DAQ), etc. and configured with a vast array of output formats to include mV/V, RS-422, RS-485, utilising the ASCII, MODBUS RTU and CAN-BUS protocols or supplied with integral amplifier allowing analogue outputs such as 4-20mA, 0-10v, 0-5v etc.

Whether used in heavy lifting, mooring anchor placement or sub-sea applications, Straightpoint’s cabled Loadshackle offers robust construction, advanced electronics, industry leading resolution and accuracy all at a cost-effective, affordable price.
Requires connection to Straightpoint’s Handheld plus (HHP) or External Amplifier range (SA-3420) that can be configured to provide outputs such as 4-20mA, 0-10v, 0-5v for PLC or data logger integration.
