Omni Instruments LLC offers a variety of sensor solutions which can meet and exceed OSHA regulations for monitoring your crane.
Variable angle booms must have a system to inform the operator the angle of the boom, with an accuracy of around 1%. Our new DMI series digital inclinometers offer a 0.1° accuracy, far better than the 1% specified by OSHA, and a 0.01° resolution to ensure you know exactly where you boom is at all times. The DMI is very easy to install, either with its mounting holes or with the strong magnet, and features an easy to read LED display which can be located in the cab.
Wind speed is another important consideration, while ground conditions can seem quite calm, at the tip of the boom this could be a completely different scenario. The WWS Skywatch from Omni Instruments is an all in one wind speed sensor, indicator and external alarm controller. The indicator gives the operator a continuous picture of the conditions and the optional alarm output will inform the operator of programmable pre-set alarm conditions have been reached.
While modern cranes have the ability to inform the user of the exact load of the load they are moving, the reliability and accuracy of these systems can be questionable. The ET link, both wired and wireless, give you an exact reading of weight of the load you are lifting, no second guessing and wondering if your instruments are correct. The fast update and 0.25% accuracy up to 250 tonnes ensure that no matter you’re under hook crane lifting application, the ET link will give you up to the second reliable readings.
