Straightpoint's global distributor network has received the manufacturer's latest catalogue that details new products, including the Wireless Low Headroom Link and Wireless Impact Block. They are among a myriad of other force measurement, load monitoring and suspended weighing load cell innovations in a 48-page document that was launched in three languages on 12 October 2016.
Now available in a wireless version, the Straightpoint range of low headroom links is designed to provide accurate measurement of loads in the most challenging applications where headroom restrictions are a major factor. The Impact Block, meanwhile, measures the shock load and weight of branches as they are cut during tree felling or maintenance; it has proved popular with tree surgeons and other professionals from the arboriculture industry.
Among other changes to the catalogue are details of ATEX and IECEx hazardous area approval on much of the wireless load cell range. At the turn of the year, Straightpoint launched a version of its most popular product, the Radiolink plus wireless load cell, which met Zone 0, 1 and 2 hazardous area classification, but the catalogue includes the Wireless Load Shackle, Wireless Compression Load Cell and Running Line Dynamometer ranges in ATEX and IECEx versions, in addition to what David Ayling, director at Straightpoint, called a "game changing" product in the Wireless Load Pin for hazardous areas.
