Straightpoint has introduced a wireless compression loadcell for use in the mining, energy, defence, heavy rigging, shipping, aircraft and general transportation sectors. Typical applications include hydraulic and pneumatic press force verification and calibration, structural testing, aircraft weighing, material force testing, heavy construction pile driving and static or dynamic weighing.

The wireless compression loadcell is able to calculate the total mass and the centre of gravity on loads up to and exceeding 4,000 tonnes.

The device was previously available in a hardwired standard format. The new wireless version has eradicated troublesome and hard-to-maintain cables, meaning large-scale projects can be completed in less time and maintenance costs are eliminated.

Data transmission is handled by the Straightpoint Wireless system, providing high-integrity, error-free transmission of data via the latest in IEEE 802.15.4 (2.4GHz) technology. The wireless compression loadcell can also be linked up to Straightpoint’s wireless accessories, including a wireless signal booster and software packages.
