Magtrol’s Load Monitoring Units are used for measuring load, force and weight from signals generated by strain gauge transducers. Specifically designed for use with Magtrol’s Load Measuring Pins and Load-Force-Weight Sensors, the LMU Series provides excitation voltage while conditioning the bridge output signal. Each unit contains DIP-switches and jumpers for greater flexibility and complete adaptability. User-defined alarm limits can be programmed into the unit, which when combined with our sensors, provides a safe and rugged measurement system that continuously monitors for short-circuits and interrupted signal lines. Magtrol LMUs are specially designed for use in harsh environments and are suitable for crane security systems.
Large Remote Displays
If a large display is required a GAD Series Remote Display (with heights ranging from 57 to 400 mm) can be used in combination with any Magtrol LMU unit.
Up to 4 LB Load Measuring Pins (full-bridge strain gauges) can be connected in parallel to the LMU Load Monitoring Unit, using a JB 113 (2 load pins in parallel) or JB 114 (4 load pins in parallel) junction box.
