Load Block Plus LBP, 0.25 – 5.0 tonnes

The Loadblock plus is a low capacity, self-indicating compression load cell, used in many testing and load monitoring applications worldwide.

The integral display eliminates the need for a separate display or cable assembly 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 Straightpoint’s Loadblock has advanced features and benefits that provide solutions for today’s complicated load test, as well as 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. Should this occur, the load cell in question can be removed from service immediately, following the calibration-voiding overload event. It can then be sent out for proper testing and, if necessary, a re-calibration can be done before it re-enters 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 5,000+ 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.
