Loadshackle - Wireless/Telemetry, Cabled, Subsea and ATEX/IECEx

Loadshackles are a robust and effective means of measuring tensile loads in a variety of applications. Built to withstand the demands of challenging environments, SP Loadshackles are ideal for compact and reliable lifting and weighing operations across all industry sectors including oil & gas, marine, subsea, construction and military. They are available as wireless/telemetric or cabled, the latter option usually preferred when the shackle is to be fitted subsea to a mooring or tie-down. Manufactured from a premium brand and globally recognised shackle manufacturers Crosby. SP Loadshackles are rated at 5:1 and supplied in a carry case or shipping crate with a certificate of proof test and calibration with a two-year warranty. Every product is shipped with a custom machined rotating load bobbin that acts to centralise and evenly distribute the load across the shackle pin.

Running Line Tensiometer - TIMH

The TIMH range is a Wireless Running Line Tensiometer or RLTM built with dockside, marine, offshore, towage and salvage applications in mind. It is particularly useful where there is no anchor or dead end on the line to rig a Straightpoint Radiolink or Loadlink digital dynamometer to measure tension force at speeds up to 20m/min or 65ft/min.

Two versions of the TIMH are available: 
– Long-range 2.4GHz version providing industry leading wireless range of 700m or 2300ft to SP’s SW-HHP handheld or software options.
– Bluetooth output and can be connected to any smartphone running our free HHP app on iOS or Android at ranges up to 100m or 328ft.

The TIMH is constructed from marine grade stainless steel and is suitable for many wire rope configurations up to 80t and will, as an option, calculate lineout and speed in metres or feet. The TIMH has several mounting points featured in its unique design but if other mounting options are required Straightpoint can provide a custom engineered solution specific to your application.

Available as a wireless or cabled system utilising Straightpoint’s HHP range of handheld displays or SW-MWLC software, this impressive Running Line Dynamometer or RLTM is available to ship from stock, to anywhere in the world within days.

Clamp On Line Tensionmeter - COLT Guy wire, steel wire tension shunt meter

The Straightpoint COLT is a lightweight wire rope tension meter or shunt tension meter for fast and accurate measurement of tensions up to 11,000lb or 5000 kg and up to 1” or 25mm diameter. 

Manufactured using an integral, high accuracy, Bluetooth module the COLT transmits load data wirelessly to any smart device running our Android or iOS app. 

The latest COLT App has two key modes, one for measuring tension on static wire rope lines and the other for the installation, repair and maintenance of elevator cars.

Wire Rope Mode:
• Records GPS coordinates
• Logs the local temperature and wind speed from local NOAA
• Multi anchor data logging with camera mode for a photo on your report
Elevator Mode:
• Car weighing – measure tension on each cable and automatically calculate car weight
• Car balancing – measure and calculate the balance of load across up to 10 cables
