Advantages of the MSI Clamp-On Load Cell
Quick and easy installation
The MSI Clamp-On Load Cell clamps quickly and easily to the wire rope dead end, and can easily be connected to a variety of external detection devices. This quick installation saves your operators time on the job site and requires minimal downtime for the equipment.
Promote safety by preventing overload
The Clamp-On Load Cell uses weight-based set points to let operators know when they are reaching potential overload of a machine’s safe lifting capacity. This will not only lengthen the life cycle of expensive machinery, but ensure personnel safety as they can monitor load limits from a distance.
Designed for a wide variety of applications
MSI Clamp-On Load Cells are commonly used with crane rigging, clevis, and overhead weighing applications, but have been embraced by a wide array of industries. The device is ideal for operations currently using cranes, as well as crane manufacturers and equipment distributors in the crane and overhead material handling industry.
