Products of SIRRAH range enable measurement of sway movement of coil or slab being handled with overhead bridge cranes.

Sway movement measurement is made by a SIRRAH sensor which evaluates angles of infrared beacon located on grab's head-block. 

LS08 SIRRAH sensor positioned downwards is vertically situated in the trolley and beacon is located upwards on grab's head-block.
An associated computer or PLC (not provided by Arck sensor) can regulate the swaying movement.

As an alternative, Arck Sensor provides a display to help the crane driver handling the load in a safe way. 

 

REQUIRED MATERIAL FOR SWAY MEASUREMENT on OHB Crane
