Straightpoint Loadblock Plus 

Manufactured By Straightpoint in the UK 

Capacity: 250kg - 5te 

The Loadblock Plus is a low capacity, self-indicating compression load cell. It is used for the measurement of loads associated with the testing of hydraulic presses, cylinders or jacks. One of the main benefits is that there is no need for a separate display or cable assemble as there is an integral display.

Loadblock has many advanced features and benefits to support a range of complicated load test and 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. 

The overload alarm counter is a requirement for many safety and quality control departments as it monitors overload events and allows the load cell to then be immediately removed from service following a calibration voiding overload event. The load cell can then be sent out for proper testing and recalibration before re-entering 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. 

Loadblock Plus has 5000 + divisions and provides the highest standard resolution of any self-indicating compression load cell currently available.
