A customer wants a system to detect if their crane block can lift heavy loads securely, in order to keep working conditions and personnel safe. If lifting capacities are exceeded, the customer wants a system to alarm them in real-time.
Interface’s WTSLP Wireless Stainless Steel Load Pin can replace the existing load bearing pin in the crane block in order to measure the force being applied by the heavy load. Data will be transmitted and displayed through both the WTS-BS-4 USB Base Station (when paired with the customer’s supplied PC computer and the WTS-BS-1-HA Wireless Handheld for real-time results. The WTS-RM1 Wireless Relay Output Receiver Module will also trigger an alarm when maximum capacity has been reached.
The WTSLP Wireless Stainless Steel Load Pin, combined with the WTS products, was able to measure and determine force applied the moment a heavy load is lifted. The results were transmitted wirelessly, and ensured the customer whether or not the crane block was safely operational during production.
