Gantry cranes are used for a number of mobile and lifting applications within industrial or construction environments. A weighing system is needed to see if the gantry crane can handle lifting heavy containers or loads, preventing crane failure or accidents.
Interface’s WTSLP Wireless Stainless Steel Load Pins can be installed into the corners of the lifting mechanism of the gantry crane, where heavy loaded containers are lifted and moved. The force results are then wireless transmitted to both the WTS-BS-1-HS Wireless Handheld Display for Single Transmitters, or directly to the customer’s PC with the WTS-BS-6 Wireless Telemetry Dongle Base Station.
The customer was able to monitor the loads lifted from their gantry crane with Interface’s Wireless Telemetry System, and determine whether or not their gantry crane was able to handle lifting heavy loads.
