A Durable Solution for Measuring Wire Rope Tension

The MSI Clamp-on Load Cell is a durable solution for measuring wire rope tension, providing dependable overload detection and prevention for overhead cranes and hoists. Available in two envelopes to accommodate most common wire ropes, 3/8-1/2 inch and 9/16-3/4 inch, the MSI Clamp-on installs quickly and easily to the wire rope dead end. The integral signal cable can be connected to a variety of detection device such as the MSI-8004 LED indicator or an advanced SCT weight transmitter. Weight-based setpoints can be used to communicate with crane electronics providing operator alerts and safety shut offs based on unsafe load conditions.
