Jib cranes are used to move or carry heavy loads, as it is attached to a vertical mast or strong support structure. A tension monitoring system is needed to ensure the loads being lifted does not go over the jib crane’s capacity.
Interface’s WTSATL-JR Aluminum Compact Wireless Tension Link can be attached to the cable of the jib crane. When a heavy load is place at the end of the jib crane, the force results are wirelessly transmitted to the WTS-BS-1-HS Wireless Handheld Display for Single Transmitters or displayed on the customer’s PC through the WTS-BS-6 Wireless Telemetry Dongle Base Station.
The customer was able to monitor the cable tension forces of the jib crane to ensure it did not reach its maximum capacity.
