Straightpoint Bluelink Dynamometer

Designed to replace outdated mechanical products still in the field this 14,300lb (6500kg) Dynamometer, the “BlueLink” is the latest SP product to feature our proprietary Bluetooth wireless technology.

The Bluetooth signal effortlessly connects to any iOS or Android smartphone that has our free HHP app installed and provides the operator a wireless range of up to 328ft or 100m – allowing them to stand themselves in a safe position from the load with no requirement to read a load on the loadcell itself. The app will also allow the operator to log data versus time or on events such as over or underload and the adjustable alarm will alert the operator on their smartphone if any overload is occurring.

Rigged using industry standard shackles such as Crosby G2130 the Bluelink has been designed to minimise headroom (just 6” or 156mm from eye to eye) and its compact lightweight design does not sacrifice on strength with a safety factor of over 500%.

Constructed from high quality aerospace grade aluminium and hard anodized it features an advanced internal design structure. This design not only provides the product with an unrivalled strength to weight ratio, but it also allows the use of a separate internal sealed enclosure providing the load cell's electronic components with NEMA6 or IP67 environmental protection even with the battery cover plate missing, making this industry compact dynamometer even more suitable for use in the harshest industrial or leisure environments.

The BlueLink is powered by four x standard AA alkaline batteries that provide in excess of 500 hours transmission time and its internal antennae ensures loads to an accuracy of 0.1% FS are transmitted safely.

APPLICATIONS

  • Versatile for any application to replace outdated mechanical products still in the field.
  • Small to medium crane lifts
  • Freight and cargo weighing
  • Aircraft and marine vessel manufacturing/building
  • Cable/rope tensioning
  • Precision field testing of chain, rope, wire.
  • Multiple applications within construction, transportation and logistics, and material handling

Vetec V-LINK Dynamometer, IP67
Vetec A/S

Vetec V-LINK Dynamometer, IP67

The V-LINK Dynamometer from Vetec A/S is designed with the purpose to increase efficiency and accuracy in all situations, including harsh and humid environments.

The development has been focused on optimizing features that make it easy for the operator to handle and operate the dynamometer and still achieve stable and accurate measurements. The increased ease of use is achieved, for example, by a flat design, simple menu structure, quick guide and fast charging with standard USB charger.

Achieving an IP67 class has been especially important in order to accommodate customers working in wet and humid environments. To test the functionality, the dynamometer has been immersed in 1 meter deep water for half an hour. The result was a fully functional product.

V-LINK is designed and manufactured in Denmark for high quality assurance and the service department provides professional support, repair and calibration service.

Hardy OneMount™

Hardy OneMount™ Load Cells

The Hardy OneMount™with Advantage® shear beams are specifically built to save customers time and money during installation, calibration, and maintenance. Each load point provides extraordinary flexibility and durability in most industrial environments.  Each feature of the load point was intentionally designed based on nearly 100 years of process weighing experience, delivering a best-in-class measurement system for vessel, hopper and tank weighing.

Accuracy

  • Self-centering rocker design maintains alignment under considerable shear forces
  • Precision sensor (combined error 0.02% rated output) from 1,125 lbs – 22,500 lbs
  • Optional Dynamic Stabilization Rods can be purchased to reduce vibration noise on the sensor for better resolution

Safety

  • Liftoff and side force ratings are confirmed by third party destructive testing
  • True glass-to-metal hermetically sealed sensors deliver the ultimate washdown protection (IP68/IP69K) 
  • C2® electronic calibration reduces the risk of accidents or contamination from test weights

Easy Installation

  • Integral spacers can carry the full rated capacity without the load cell installed, eliminating the need for expensive dummy load cells or welding fixtures
  • Once mounts are installed, the load cells slide into place.  With minimal tank jacking (1/8”), the spacers are removed for a live load point
  • 360° checking mechanism means load points can be installed in any direction
  • C2® electronic calibration for fast startup in high capacity installations 

Easy Maintenance

  • Replace load cells with minimal tank jacking (1/8”)
  • Matched mV/V/ohm load cells are easy to replace without recalibration

User Benefits

  • OEE improvement from consistent, accurate performance, and reduced installation and maintenance time
  • Reduced capital investment and labor typically associated with dummy load cells and welding fixtures
  • Reduced complexity of system selection and installation from a single, universal design

See Our YouTube Video on the Safe, EASY and Accurate OneMount!

Easy Installation Process

  1. Align and level the mounts under the vessel without the load cells installed.  The mounts can be installed in any orientation, because of a 360º checking mechanism to ensure accuracy and safety. 
  2. Lower the vessel onto the mounts and weld or bolt the mounts to the foundation and the vessel.
  3. Perform any peripheral pipe welding or add any required attachments.
  4. Slide the load cell into place and fasten to the bottom plate.
  5. Jack the vessel up 1/8” to remove the shipping/installation bracket.
  6. Lower the vessel onto the live load point and calibrate using Hardy’s C2® electronic calibration.
