Vigor SST20 and SST810 Inclination Sensor Improve Security and Reliability of Cranes

30 May 2019

Vigor Technology: At present, crane equipment is inseparable in most of the construction projects. When it refers to the security of the cranes, the stable operation of cranes requires a high degree of attention to the anti-overturning properties.

A crane is a mechanical facility capable of moving heavy objects in vertical and horizontal directions, and is mainly used for material transportation within a certain range. In the process of moving materials, cranes are not easily affected by the terrain, which is convenient and fast, and the amount of transportation is large. Therefore, cranes play an important role in many places. However, overturning often occurs due to excessive load or unevenness. In order to ensure the safety of the crane operation process, the angle of the boom and the car body are usually detected by an angle monitoring tool such as a tilt sensor to prevent rollover accident.

Vigor SST20 Used on Crane Body for Chassis Leveling

When the crane is working, the material to be lifted will generate a large torque at the fulcrum which is between the boom and the vehicle body. When the ground that the crane located is uneven, it will reduce the load capacity of the crane under the same conditions, which is very likely to cause a rollover accident. Therefore, it is necessary to install an inclination sensor on the body of the crane to measure its tilt angle, thereby adjusting the vehicle body to a horizontal state. For the application of crane chassis leveling, we recommend the Vigor Technology SST20 tilt angle sensor which features MTBF of more than 10 years, good EMC capability and protection capability, and it can fully meet the application requirements of crane tilt attitude monitoring.

Vigor SST810 Dynamic Inclinometer Used on Crane for Monitoring the Boom Attitude Precisely

Besides, when the lifting angle of the crane boom is too large, the weight distribution of the entire system in the horizontal direction is too concentrated, thereby greatly reducing the horizontal stability of the crane. In order to prevent the boom angle of the boom from being too large, it requires the tilt module to limit the lifting angle so as to avoid dangers caused by other unstable factors. For the dynamic attitude monitoring of the crane boom, we recommend the Vigor Technology SST810 dynamic tilt sensor which is a drift-free inertial dynamic inclinometer. It can provide roll and pitch angle of moving objects with high refresh rate. It can accurately measure the real-time attitude of crane booms.
