Over loading of the crane is a common occurrence. To prevent the same, IPA has the “Trip safe” which would ensure that over loading of the crane/hoist is prevented. In this crane over load protection system, the trip safe module is used in conjunction with a suitable loadcell. The advantage of this system over the conventional system is the speed at which the module responds. Also as this is the direct measurement of the load, the action taken for tripping is appropriate and quick. The “Trip Safe” will ensure that both overload and under load is prevented. Underload occurs when the hook is further released after it touches the ground, which can cause the rope to slip out of the pulley. This low cost solution is ideally suited for all crane and hoist manufacturers.
