Multi Point Load Monitoring
Ron StageMaster for safe stage rigging and Ron CraneMaster for heavy complex lifting can monitor real time changes in hundreds of lifting/suspension points and show them as a real time load map on one screen while their exceptional battery life (5000 hours) enable continuous load monitoring for months..
Multi Point load monitoring is important in several applications:
Heavy complex lifting
Any time a load is suspended using 3 or more hanging points it becomes statically indeterminate, this makes it practically impossible to calculate or estimate the actual load placed on each point.
When a heavy object is lifted using several hanging points, load monitoring becomes crucial for maintaining the planned load distribution across each of the hanging points.
A real time load map with continuous measurements can help keep the weight of a heavy object evenly distributed during lifting and aid in the safe completion of a complex lift, protecting expensive equipment and even more importantly the lives of the people around it.
Safe Stage Rigging:
Concerts and other live events often employ complex rigging structures that could greatly benefit from the use of multiple point load monitoring systems that display all measurements on a real time load map. As previously mentioned any load suspended from 3 or more points require the use of a load monitoring system in order to ensure appropriate load distribution. Live events often use 3 or more hoists to lift a single truss with tons of attached equipment. This single truss could be suspended above performers or audiences making safe load distribution a critical issue.
Advanced Logistics and Stock Management:
A multiple point load monitoring system can provide real time indication of resource utilization of multiple sites, automate routing of transportation fleets for either removal stored material and/or supply of new material in a timely and efficient manner.
This real time information from hundreds of checkpoints can be shown as real time load map in a control room, or view information from up to 200 load cells on smartphones and tablets.
Complex load monitoring can lead to a dramatic reduction in costs by helping to avoid spoilage, slack time, and poorly scheduled and routed transportation runs.
Examples would include emptying underground garbage bins, filling silos, provisioning ice, etc.
