A convenient visual indication of the wind direction relative to the boom is essential in judging the movement of a load as it is going to be lifted off its location. The physical wind direction is not critical, the direction relative to the boom may be.
Crane operation will have to be shut down at a maximum wind speed. The wind speed indication will assist in making this judgement.
The Mipeg X is expandable and may, by uploading new system software, adding sensors and logic modules, function as a system which:
- shows the actual wind speed and gust
- alarms when critical limits are exceeded
- display the wind direction relative to the boom position
