LCM Systems manufacturer and supply winch load monitoring systems that provide winch line load data. This improves operational safety by allowing operators to take preventative action in the event that winch loads exceed pre-determined safe limits. The load cells that we use for this application are robust, reliable and built to withstand harsh operational environments. They can be fitted to new equipment or retrofitted without any modifications to the winch. We can supply standard load pins or dual axis load pins that take into account wrap angles. These load pins incorporate separate strain gauges in both the X and Y axis, so that the effect the wrap angle has on line loads is taken into account.
In addition to load pins, other types of load cell can be used to monitor winch loads and include load links and compression load cells. These are often used when a highly accurate solution is needed or where the use of a load measuring pin is not practical/possible.
In addition to providing improved safety, the historical data-logging of winch loads gives asset owners and managers additional information that can be used for scheduling routine maintenance and to demonstrate winch performance and integrity.
