Lambourn, Berkshire, United Kingdom, 2010/02/18 - New link load cells from LCM Systems are now available as stock products. Ideal for lifting and weighing applications in industry and offshore.
As a result of the substantial increase in popularity and sales of its range of Link load cells, LCM Systems is pleased to announce the availability of its Self Indicating Link Load Cell (SILL) and Radio Telemetry Wireless Link Load Cell (RILL) as stock products. This latest introduction means that customers who have previously used these specialist, bespoke load cells for lifting and weighing applications can choose from a standard range of products resulting in faster delivery times and lower prices. The stainless steel TLL Load Monitoring Link is still available as a special and can be manufactured to specific customer requirements. However, a standard version of this product will also be soon available from stock, as will a new wireless telemetry version. The new products will be announced online and in the trade press.
Manufactured from high tensile aluminium, both the SILL and RILL are lightweight, while the shackle holes are steel bushed to ensure they are rugged and hardwearing. Both product ranges are easy to install and can be matched to standard shackle sizes. The Self Indicating Link Load Cell, with a range from 2.5 tonne to 200 tonne, has an integral display and the applied weight or force can be shown in t, kg, lb or kN, as selected by the user. A built-in alarm will also warn the operator when an applied level is met. The RILL link load cells use a license free 2.4Ghz radio and are supplied with a battery powered handheld indicator that displays the load in tonne. They can be supplied as a simple Link or LCM’s technical engineers can integrate them into more powerful radio systems.
Currently available as a special, the Load Monitoring Link (TLL) is constructed entirely from stainless steel and can be supplied with a rated load ranging from 5 tonne to 100 tonne.
Environmentally sealed to IP66, the load links are normally supplied with a MIL specification plug and socket, although as the cells are manufactured “on demand”, they can be supplied to exact specifications including size, range and output. All products are easy to install and as with the SILL and RILL can be matched to standard shackle sizes or shackles provided as part of a complete package. The TLL series can be combined with LCM Systems’ extensive range of instrumentation to provide a complete load monitoring system.
A wireless version of the TLL is currently being developed to complete this comprehensive range of Link load cells from LCM Systems.
