Tugboats are specialized vessels created for towing other ships or floating structures. These boats rely on cables or ropes to perform their towing tasks, but need to be tested and monitored to ensure safety and efficient towing operations.
The WTSTL Wireless Tension Link Load Cell is attached to the cable of the tugboat used for towing operations. Force measurements are monitored and wirelessly transmitted to the WTS-BS-1-HS Handheld Display for Single Transmitters, or on the customers laptop through the WTS-BS-4 USB Industrial Base Station with USB enclosure using provided Log100 software.
The customer as able to monitor the forces applied on the cables of their tugboats, ensuring it was strong enough to use. Thus minimizing the risk of accidents or damage.
