2600 Load Shackle

Load capacity from 50 to 500te

Tensile load measurement : Easily enployed : Withstand harsh enviroments : High strength stainless steel load pin : Complete with bobbin and anti-rotation plate : Fitted with integral cable.


The 2600 load shackle has been designed for measuring tensile loads using double shear strain gauged element. The range is from 5 tonne to 100 tonne, with higher capacities available by request. The load pin is manufactured from high strength stainless steel and fitted with stainless steel bobbin and anti-rotation plate. The load cell is used for tempory or permanent rope tension applications, or for under hook weighing, particularly in rugged and harsh conditions.It can be also be used at the dead end of a rope such as a winch or crane.

Active Load provides complete transducer solution designing and manufacturing strain gauge transducers.

Strain gauge transducers are designed to be Load Cells, Force Sensors, Torque Sensors, Pressure Transducers and any other strain related product.

Active Load will incorporate the strain gauge cells with a strain gauge amplifier to achieve an enhanced signal. Many of our strain gauge load cells are designed to be in the form of load monitoring pins to measure rope tension. Other forms taken are as load monitoring links and compressive load cell.
