The ChainSafe, which has a 4t capacity, is available for measuring the load on lashing, load securement, tie-downs and chain sling legs, and is designed for the transportation and construction industries to secure loads and cargo.

“Transportation professionals, and those responsible for small to medium crane lifts, have already noted the benefits of adding ChainSafe to their lifting and lashing applications and how precious cargo is protected,” said Thomas Dietvorst, director, Technology Solutions division, The Crosby Group.

Connected to Crosby Straightpoint’s free Android or iOS HHP App, which has real-time overload alerts and reporting for later analysis, and with a range of 100m (328ft) the ChainSafe ensures the safety of cargo during transit and is the perfect combination with a Speedbinder or Lebus Loadbinder to accurately monitor the tension on tie-downs.

Because ChainSafe is equipped with a range of optional chain fittings offered by The Crosby Group —such as hooks, lashing and chain shorteners from Gunnebo Industries and Crosby, the device is totally adaptable. The design has a sealed stainless steel enclosure providing IP67 or NEMA6 environmental protection, making the dynamometer even more suitable for use in the harshest environments.

The Crosby Straightpoint ChainSafe is the latest release in The Crosby Group’s platform of technology-centric products.

Additional features include a battery life of five years, based on four hours of use per day; and an internal antenna.
