  • Features of Strainsert Load Sensing Clevis Pins

    • Easy Installation: By replacing pins in Crosby (or Equivalent) wire rope socket, with minimum machining alterations (2-tapped holes), and hardware (2-bolts, keeper plate).
    • Precise Cable Load Sensing: Complete bridge circuit bonded and sealed inside small hole along longitudinal axis of Pin, calibrated in the direction of the applied load.
    • Rugged: Self protecting nature of strain gage installation sealed in small hole, and has proven to be immune to harsh environment.
    • Accuracy: Strainsert Load Sensing Clevis Pins have combined error due to repeatability and non-linearity less than 1% of rated load typically.

      Typical Load Sensing Applications

    • End of Whip Line Winch
    • Clam Shell
    • Boom Pendant Cable Support
    • Crane Hoist Cables

  • PAGE9F-3

    Many Strainsert Instrumented Clevis Pin designs are incorporated into sheave and pulley systems. The user has the option of either designing a sheave around our standard CPA Clevis Pin series or having a custom pin manufactured for an existing sheave design with a tailored measurement capacity and geometry, allowing for simple installation and optimized measurement capability.

    The Instrumented Sheave Pins are often used to measure line tension by monitoring the reaction load on the pin. Using the equations provided in the Clevis Pins for Sheave Applications Downloads, the line tension can be determined.

  • Dual

    Dual bridge circuits, Built-in signal conditioning, Bi-axial force measurement, Deep sea pin systems and Intrinsically rated force sensing clevis pins are examples of optional features.
