Compression Load Cell
The Loadblock Plus is a low capacity, self-indicating compression loadcell, used in many testing and load monitoring applications worldwide. The integral display eliminates the need for a separate display or cable assemble that can be easily damaged. Applications include the measurement of loads associated with the testing of hydraulic presses, cylinders or jacks.
This latest version of our Loadblock has advanced features and benefits providing solutions for today’s complicated load test and force monitoring needs. Features include full function push button controls for tare, units of measure (lbs, kg, kN, and tonnes), peak hold, pre-set tare, audible set-point alarm and an overload counter.
This crucial overload alarm counter is a requirement for many safety and quality control departments as it keeps track of overload events allowing the load cell in question to be removed from service immediately following a calibration voiding overload event. The load cell in question can then be sent out for proper testing and if necessary, re-calibration before re-entering service.
The advanced microprocessor based electronics provide the Loadblock Plus with high speed read rates (500/sec), extreme resistance to industrial level noise and unprecedented stability.
This high stability provides the Loadblock Plus with 5000 + divisions and the highest standard resolution of any self-indicating compression load cell on the market today.
The unit also features a RS-485 serial output port allowing for remote viewing with either the handheld Plus Digital Display/Controller or Windows PC Desktop controller data logging software.
