Load Links, Analogue or Digital

Custom Made Tension Load Links

All Techno Monitoring custom made tension reference Load Link load cell systems from small to high capacity are made with high quality alloy steel or stainless steel grade materials and manufactured in The Netherlands under our dedicated Quality Process Management System.

Tension links are designed using the latest technology in modeling and FEA analysis. Computer modeling confirms the low stress and long product life of >25 years. Our in house engineering team will work with you to guarantee the development of a tension load link load cell that meets all your requirements.

Extreme engineering. Building a precision instrument that can survive the offshore environment requires masterful engineering. This is where our experience shines through. Our engineers design according to a vast industrial application knowledge and conducted intensive materials testing to achieve high structural integrity.

Custom tension links are available in capacities up to, and exceeding, 1400 ton capacity and can be designed to meet ultimate overload and industrial safety factors of up to 800% overload protection.

Deepsea (data logging) load link load cells

Our strengths are our expertise and experience.

Techno Monitoring have put 40 years of experience into designing market leading subsea load sensors ideally suited for any operational offshore environment from splash zone to deep-sea (3800 mtr).

When faced with an unpredictable, harsh and challenging environment, robust construction is the key for reliable signal conditioning, data collection and logging.

In this application load link sensors can face a number of threats from chemical corrosion to powerful collisions with heavy objects. That is why our sensors are all stainless steel, have vacuum injection molding of the electrical instrument cables to the sensor body and thick sensor walls.

Their tough construction prevents premature failure, giving you confidence in the durability of your dedicated deep sea load sensor.

Techno Monitoring’s sensors incorporate the most recent technological advances in subsea load measurement (e.g. force in combination with integrated options for: acceleration, vibration, inclination, pressure and temperature).
