2900 Marine Load Pin

Tensile or compressive load measurement, the 2900 marine load pin is an easily employed, high-strength stainless-steel load pin that is designed to withstand harsh enviroments.

It comes with a protection cage and a fitted marine connector.


The 2900 marine pin is designed for each application and special features can be included. The pin is generally manufactured from high-strength stainless-steel and is issued with certified material certificates. The strain gauges are internally installed that is back filled with dielectric gel.
