Designed loads often vary widely from actual loads. ZS Rope Sense Load Cells allow you to quickly and easily confirm actual working loads on your hardware and line. Compact, lightweight mobile load cells are designed for use with soft connections. Use them between a deck eye, strong point or traveler car and block to give a continuous tracking load readout, or measure peak load. Tie them directly to halyards or sheets or use the ZS-LOOP soft attachment. Includes three-digit LCD display. Wireless versions have no built-in LCD display and output their data to either a PC enabled with Rope Sense software, or a Spinlock ZS-WD handheld readout. Waterproof rating: IP65. Rated for loads of 150% of maximum working load.
