Road bridges lifts are specially constructed on roads or highways that intersect with water bodies such as rivers, canals, or harbors, allowing navigation to continue unimpeded. A force sensor system is needed to ensure the structural integrity of the bridge along with safe operation.
Interface suggests installing their LP Stainless Steel Load Pins within the pulley’s of the pulley system of the bridge. When the bridge is lifted, the LP’s will detect the force implemented. Results are displayed for the customer using the 920i Programmable Weight Indicator and Controller.
Interface’s load pins and instrumentation successfully monitored the forces of the road bridge lift during its operation.
