Entertainment LED Screens
There was an opportunity of a new venue’s construction project, requiring Interface’s wireless force measurement system for numerous giant LED screens. This customer needed a wireless solution to ensure the safety and overload protection of the structure holding up the LED screens. Interface suggested using their LW General Purpose Load Washer Load Cells being installed and assembled within rods that are part of the screen’s support structure. The LED screens hang off this structure, which is structurally supported by the rods. The compression forces from the weight of the LED screens applied to the rod was measured by the LW’s that were installed in between. The load washers are paired with WTS-AM-1E Wireless Strain Bridge Transmitter Modules, where the force results are wirelessly transmitted to both the WTS-BS-1 Wireless Handheld Display for Unlimited Transmitters and the WTS-BS-4 Wireless Base Stations with included Log100 software. Interface’s load washers combined with WTS Wireless Telemetry System products successfully weighed the forces of the large LED screen for the customer’s new entertainment venue.
