Shackle Load Cells
There are many applications throughout most industries in which people need to measure force. Oftentimes when needing to measure hanging weights or in lifting applications, a unique type of load cell is required to measure the forces on the lifting or holding equipment. Shackle load cells make it possible to add a load sensing within the space of a single shackle and accurately measure the load being applied. All of the load cell’s force measurement capabilities are housed within the pin of a shackle, resulting in an exceedingly small yet capable load cell. If you are in the market for a device such as this, look no further than Eilon Engineering.
There is a reason why so many major corporations have trusted Eilon Engineering’s products for over 45 years. If you seek to measure weight, you need something that is reliable, safe, and accurate. All Eilon Engineering load cell devices are made from high quality aerospace steel and are fatigue rated to provide reliable performance against the test of time and usage. Eilon Engineering also proudly offers 0.1% - 2% accuracy depending on the model, so that you can have confidence in your measurements. These two critical factors, combined with many other added bonuses are what makes Eilon Engineering one of the best shackle load cell manufacturers out there. If you are in the market for a shackle load cell, then give us a call today and we will help you find just what you need.
Shackle Load Cell Products
If you are hunting for the perfect shackle load cell for your load monitoring application, then Eilon Engineering has the perfect product line for you. Eilon Engineering’s various highly reliable and highly customizable shackle load cells make it possible for you to choose the ideal load cell system for your needs.All of these various load cells include different features and can be purchased with a wide range of options including protective cases (for some of the models), multiple displays, multipoint wireless load cells, data loggers, and various signaling and communication options. This makes it possible to find the load cell that works perfectly in conjunction with your existing systems and data collection devices.
So how exactly do shackle load cells work? In these devices you have a shackle that is used to support the weight or object that you are moving. The shackle itself contains a load cell built into the pin. The load cell which converts the shear forces from the load into a small voltage signal. This voltage signal can be output as is, conditioned and amplified to a larger, more measurable voltage or current, or output via another method such as Bluetooth or RF. That way you can turn a physical force into a measurable signal and thereby data.
So, what different types of outputs are available. First off, strain gauges as found in load cells output a mV/V output. There are certain load cells where this is the only output offered and it is up to the customer to do with it whatever they need. Most load cells will have internal signal conditioning which will amplify the small signal into a larger signal. This is often 4-20 mA or 0-3V. Some load cells, such as those offered by Eilon Engineering, allow for Bluetooth and RF communications from the load cell.
How do you know if you should order a display equipped model? Displays are great if you want a simple device that displays the measurement value without much configuration or setup. There are local displays that connect directly to the load cell, and there are remote displays that communicate with the sensor via a wireless protocol. If a quick and simple way to get instant feedback on the load measurement is what you need, displays are great.
As we have mentioned, there are so many different options when it comes to selecting a shackle load cell. As a result, you could easily become overwhelmed with the variety of options and customizations. Do not let all of this stress you out and just let Eilon Engineering do the hard part.

High Performance Shackle Load Cells
The shackle load cells offered by Eilon Engineering stand out among the rest thanks to their extreme capability and reliability. These devices offer exceptionally long battery life (up to 10,000 hours in some configurations) which reduces your equipment downtime. They can be viewed from a tablet or smartphone with a pocket sized receiver. You can also get data logging built into the device so that you can have access to all of the historical data that you want.
All of these features and many more that Eilon Engineering offers are what make our products so special. All of these features are combined into an extremely low headroom device that is incredibly simple and quick to install. From there you can reliably monitor your weight data from almost any device of your choosing.
You can further count on the reliability of safety features of these products. All load cells are proof tested at 200% of their rated load. That means you do not have to worry about your load cell failing on you. On the contrary, our systems keep your personnel and infrastructure safe helping to avoid damaged product, and production downtime. Additionally, each of these load cells is fatigue rated meaning that they are designed in such a way that they can be loaded and unloaded repeatedly without the material losing strength over time. This can give you peace of mind knowing that your product will not fail on you. All of this and more is just part of what makes Eilon Engineering products so great. If you are in need of load shackles, don’t hesitate to give us a call today.
