Magtrol Introduces Its New Generation of Load Pins
Buffalo, NY - Magtrol, a leader in the worldwide load-force market for 40 years with its reputable LB/LE load pins, is introducing its latest development, the LU Series Load Measuring Pin. Based on the well-known, highly accurate and reliable strain-gauge technology with full temperature compensation, this load pin is presenting a new integrated amplifier concept.
The compact design provides an amplified 0-10V signal output directly from the sensor, proportional to the load. An integrated electronic board has been designed to answer the strongest electromagnetic compatibility and immunity (EMC/EMI) requirements. These new built-in features alleviate problems linked with external amplifier connections.
Manufactured in Switzerland, the LU Series load pin is available in 10 standard capacities from 2.5 to 1250 kN (0.28 to 140.5 tf) with special versions up to 2500 kN (281 tf). Made of high resistance stainless steel, the LU load pin is available with standard options including lubrication and output connector type. Special options include an IP 68 protection grade and OIML weight and measurement certification. For extreme environmental applications, Magtrol can also provide special test certificates including sharpy-hardness test, ultrasonic, magnetoscopic and real under load tests, all of which are certified by accredited laboratories.
Magtrol's LU Series Load Measuring Pins are especially suited for outdoor applications. They provide load measurement and overload protection for lifts, cranes, hoisting gear and winches, and force detection for nuclear, offshore and harbor applications.
