In cable logging systems, the tension of the cables need to be monitored to maintain a safe working environment, and prevent any potential equipment damage. A system is needed to monitor the tension of the cables.
Interface’s WTSATL Lightweight Aluminum Wireless Tension Link is attached to the cables of the logging yarder, where tension forces are monitored. Force measurements are transmitted to the WTS-BS-1-HS Handheld Digital Display for Single Transmitters and to the customers computer or laptop through the WTS-BS-4 USB Industrial Base Station. With the WTS Log100 Software,the customer is able to graph and log the data results with this software onto their computer.
The logging company was able to monitor the tension of their cables on the logging yarder during logging operations to ensure a safe working environment.
