Power lines are a critical component of electrical infrastructure, responsible for transmitting electricity over vast distances. Ensuring the safety and reliability of them is of extreme importance. Power line maintenance is regularly tested and monitored, and an efficient monitoring system is needed.
Interface recommends utilizing WMC Sealed High Capacity Stainless Steel Miniature Load Cells in conjunction with road end bearings to record cable tension forces during a maintenance procedure. The tension forces can be measured by the 9330 High Speed Data Logger from Interface, and the results can be displayed on the customer’s PC or laptop.
Interface’s force measurement system successfully monitored the power lines and their cables during its maintenance operation.
