120k Load Link with Integral Data Logging25th Oct 2021
This 120kN stainless steel load link with integral data logging has been designed for use in an underground cable pulling application. The load link had to be designed with smooth edges to minimise the risk of snagging and also be a stand-alone device with a long battery life and integrated data acquisition system capable of recoding data every second. The load link holes were sized to suit Crosby G209A shackles, and the unit pressure tested to 10psi to ensure suitability for use in potentially waterlogged environments. The load link measures the tension applied to the cable as it is being pulled through conduit to ensure it stays within operational limits and to identify any instances where the cable has become snagged or caught.
