LCM3782 85te Tonsberg Wireless Mooring Load Link

The initial enquiry was received through our website from a multi-national marine engineering company, based in Canada. They had seen our standard TELSHACK-B product, but it did not suit their requirements precisely.

They liked the principle of a wireless telemetry shackle, but wanted to measure ship docking tension on a winch and the load cell had to handled by one person. This was hard to achieve with a conventional shackle, when the measurement range is 85te. A more compact solution was needed.

The main criteria we were given was as follows:

  • The load cell had to be a shackle style load cell
  • It had to be light enough for a single operator to lift manually.
  • The construction had to be robust for use in an offshore and heavy industrial environment.
  • Full traceability was required on all materials.
  • The solution had to be wireless, to eliminate trailing cables
  • 85te Tonsberg Mooring Link
  • A handheld battery powered display was supplied, with a gross/net facility
  • Load link and shackle hybrid
  • Mooring tension measurement
  • Rubust construction, offering IP67 sealing
  • Stainless steel load pin
  • The complete system was supplied fully calibrated and issued with certificates, traceable to UKAS
  • The wireless telemetry housing was constructed from stainless steel
