Straightpoint’s new catalogue includes a number of new products and enhancements to its industry leading range of force measurement, load monitoring and suspended weighing load cell technology.
The catalogue contains over 30 pages of technical information and illustrations, giving the UK manufacturer’s global partners and distributors a unique reference point to the growing portfolio of equipment.
Straightpoint director David Ayling said: “As the new catalogue started to come together, I knew it would represent one of the most significant milestones in Straightpoint’s history. However, only when the first copies arrived at Havant headquarters did it really strike me just how momentous the occasion was. As soon as I opened it, the catalogue made even last year’s edition look dated. It demonstrated just how far we have come over the past 18 months.”
Ayling added: “The new catalogue represents the culmination of months of hard work and dedication from the whole Straightpoint team—a process that for many started at the turn of the year. Of course, what stood out for most was the volume of new products and enhancements to our industry leading range of force measurement, load monitoring and suspended weighing load cells.”
Straightpoint has remodelled its Radiolink Plus, for example. The best selling product by some distance now features improved ingress protection to IP67, increased battery life to 1,200 hours and reverse polarity circuitry to protect the load cell should the batteries be inserted incorrectly. From mid-2015 the Radiolink product is available for use in zone 0 hazardous areas. It will be able to offer the Radiolink ATEX IECEx approved with classification Ex ia II C T4 Ga.
Wireless Loadshackle and Wireless Compression load cell ranges are now fitted with a new chassis that will give all the benefits of the Radiolink Plus. Straightpoint’s popular SW-MWLC wireless data logging software is also improved allowing the operator the ability to view and data log up to 100 Straightpoint wireless load cells simultaneously.
Wireless accessories now include the addition of a new SW-SD LED ‘score board’ LED display and a rugged, industrial windows tablet, while the compression load cells are now fitted with an o’ring protected machined enclosure that ensures that the load cell can be used in the harshest environments.
The new Low Headroom link is designed for use where space is a premium and accurate measurements are required. Designed with the entertainment rigging industry in mind this will soon become a very popular product in the Straightpoint catalogue.
