Towbar Load Cell - Towcell ®
Straightpoint has developed a 25kN, wireless tension load cell specifically engineered for the emergency services, salvage and 4 x 4 industries.
The Towcell® allows for increased safety and the avoidance of costly overloads by providing real-time monitoring of tensile towing forces during recovery, clearance and salvage efforts. The Towcell® is rugged, lightweight, compact and can be installed, with ease, onto any tow bar, whether it’s a standard 52mm or 2” ball or pin assembly and is ready to use in seconds.
Modelled after Straightpoint’s best-selling Radiolink plus,
the Towcell® is constructed of high-quality aircraft grade aluminium, featuring an advanced internal design structure providing the product with an unrivalled strength to weight ratio, and allowing for the use of a separate internal sealed enclosure.
This internal sealed enclosure provides the internal electronic components with IP67/NEMA 6 waterproof environmental protection even with the battery cover plate missing.
Easily sourced AA alkaline batteries offer massive battery life of 1200 hours, and the Towcell® utilises an unbreakable internal antenna.
Towcell® loads can be displayed on Straightpoint’s rugged and versatile SW-HHP handheld display or viewed and simultaneously data logged with a Windows tablet via Straightpoint’s SW-MWLC software package.
