Load pin, also called clevis pin load cells, are uniquely designed for applications where clevis pins, shear pins, shear axles or pulley shafts are
carrying a load. Load pins are also common in the oil industry on coiled tubing injectors to measure both the injector forces and the hanging weight of the tubing. Clevis pin load cells are manufactured to exactly replace the existing shear pin and provide real-time force monitoring of loads carried by these types of devices.

Custom Clevis Pin Load Cell Design & Engineering

Clevis pin load cells from Stellar Technology are constructed of all welded stainless steel and are hermetically sealed. They are shock and vibration-resistant and feature robust electrical connectors to stand up to the most severe operating conditions.

Series LDP990 load pins operate in tension or compression over ranges from 3,000 lbs. to 200,000 lbs. and are available with internal amplifiers to provide high-level analog and digital outputs. Standard operating temperature is -65°F to +250°F, with -320° to +400°F optionally available.

Optional shackle kits consisting of a shackle, load positioning roller and orientation bracket are available as well.

Submersible units are also offered, which are able to withstand up to 16,000 ft. of seawater. Intrinsically safe (ATEX and CSA) versions are available with 4-20 mA output. Customer-specified electrical termination, full-scale ranges and special calibrations are also offered. Each unit is shipped with a 5-point calibration record traceable to NIST as standard.

All of our load pins can be modified to meet your specific application.

Stellar Technology specializes in custom designing load pins and load cells for a customer’s unique application. Our engineering team communicates directly with your engineers to confirm that the sensor meets your application’s needs.
