Description

In 2017. Sure Torque is launching a complete new product line: the SmartLoadCell measuring devices. SmartLoadCells are wireless telemetric load cells that can be connected to any Android smartphone via Bluetooth, and so the Smartphone will act as the display and the controller of the load cell. The SmartLoadCell application will transfer the phone to a very sophisticated precocious measuring device.
General benefits of the SmartLoadCell concept:

- Economical telemetric systems, as it is not necessary to buy the remote unit
- Smartphones are having much bigger computing, graphical and memory capacity as any custom developed controller (and at lower cost)
- The smartphone can be used as background storage, but stored data’s are easy to transfer to pc via Bluetooth, wifi, internet or usb connection.
- SmartLoadCells are extra small and light

1 - Overview
The SLC-TPL1 Top Load tester is developed based on the ST-H6-T Top Load unit (video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60PwVcgAJUQ ). The unit makes it easy to check the capper head’s top load without disassembling it from the capper machine.

By moving the 2 handles the height of the TPL1 unit can be increase/decreased. So the capper head’s top load spring can be squeezed, and the force can be measured. The compression of the spring can be controlled on the mm-scaled rings on the tester.
