Straightpoint Compression Load Cell – NI Compression

Durham Lifting’s Straightpoint Compression Load Cells are manufactured in ranges from 5t to 500t – other capacities available on application. Straightpoint compression load cells are manufactured to the same stringent standards as all Straightpoint products. The bodies are machined from high grade stainless steel, offering excellent strength and anti-corrosion properties. Compression load cells can be supplied with optional loadcaps to protect objects being tested. The compact lightweight design provides ease of use and superior portability, allowing Straightpoint compression load cells to be used in a broad range of industries including mining, energy, defence, heavy rigging, shipping, and general transportation sectors. Utilising the same advanced microprocessor based electronics as all Straightpoint products, Straightpoint’s compression load cells benefit from high sampling rates, extreme resistance to industrial level noise and unprecedented stability. This high stability gives this product over 5,000 divisions and the highest standard resolution of any high capacity compression load cell on the market today. Like all our products, Straightpoint compression load cells offer robust construction, advanced electronics, industry leading resolution and accuracy all at a cost-effective, affordable price!
