Loadpin Shackle / Clevis

Force measurement sensors often made to replace an existing axle or clevis pin to measure tension or compression loads. Can be used with a sheave to measure the tension in moving wires or ropes. Most commonly custom made to meet customer dimensions.

    Load Pin

    TE CONNECTIVITY’s load pins, model FN1010, are designed to fit in the place of the regular mounting unit. 

    The implantation is facilitated by the possibility of modifying a certain number of dimensions. The FN1010 is suitable for numerous applications on lifting motors and handling equipment. The load pins can be used to measure forces on rotating components (pulleys, sheaves, etc.) and can be directly mounted on shackles.

    The sensing element is fitted with thin film strain gages in a Wheatstone bridge circuit. All FN1010 Load Pins incorporate a keyed anti-rotation slot. Optionally, the load pins may be made watertight for certain applications while resting insensitive to hydrostatic pressure effects. Additionally, the FN1010 is available with an integrated high-level analogue output.

    With many years of experience as a designer and manufacturer of sensors, TE CONNECTIVITY often works with customers to design or customize sensors for specific uses and testing environments.
