Pin Load Cell

Description

Applied Measurements DBEP shear pin load cell design is suitable for the measurement of tensile and compressive forces across a huge range of process monitoring, offshore, civil engineering, industrial, marine and crane/lifting applications.

All of our pin load cells are manufactured from stainless steel and sealed to IP67 as standard to ensure that they are able to stand up to the tough conditions that are commonplace in a typical industrial, marine or offshore application.  We also manufacture custom versions in aluminium alloy, super-duplex stainless steel and titanium where application conditions demand.

We can readily modify any shear pin load cell to make it fully submersible in sea water to depths of 6500 metres or more, and we can also integrate either analogue or digital signal conditioning to provide an output compatible with any existing monitoring or control system.
