SAILMON LoadCellBox: Loadcell to NMEA2000 interface

SAILMON LoadcellBox provides the Interface between load cells and the SAILMON system.

  • It can be used to interface all common 4-wire or 6-wire load cells.
  • Calibration is done with the SAILMON Software Tool.
  • The actual force can be displayed in N (Newton), kg, or as a % of nominal rig load.
  • It is galvanically isolated for over voltage and electrostatic discharge protection.
  • It will measure tension or pressure with an update rate of 10Hz, allowing monitoring and logging rig tension.
  • It is housed in a small waterproof case and is rated IP65.
