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 at docks and other maritime transportation applications. If lifting capacities are exceeded, the customer wants a system to alarm them in real-time.
Interface, Inc’s Model WTSATL-JR Aluminum Compact Wireless Tension Link Load Cell can measure the load’s maximum capacity. The WTS-RM1 Wireless Relay Output Receiver Modules also can trigger an alarm that can be set when the maximum capacity of weight/force has been reached. The data is transmitted and can be reviewed with the WTS-BS-1-HS Wireless Handheld Display, or on the customer’s PC.
Customer was able to verify if the crane is safe and functional enough to lift it’s working load limit (WLL) or safe working load (SWL) capacity. The data is transmitted and logged to the customer’s PC/laptop, or to a handheld device in real-time.
