Our innovative LoadSCAN™ measuring system enables simple, permanent and very accurate check of tension forces in structural members such as cables or tension rods by the means of ultrasound technology. The integration of the measuring technology with the regular and pre-approved pins of the end fittings leads to a simple and very reliable overall system. This means that along with new construction, the existing structures with tension elements can be retrofitted with this revolutionary measuring system.
The LoadSCAN™ system is perfectly suitable for both permanent and temporary use. The tensile force in the tension element can be read directly during installation with the battery-powered LoadSCAN™ handheld. With a permanent installation, the data can be read and stored locally, or it can be transferred to a remote location and kept in the cloud. Permanent monitoring is the first step towards smart structures.
LoadSCAN™ can be also developed, jointly with the customer, for special applications areas such as rockfall protection nets and general load measuring.
