DLM get adventurous

August 8, 2017

This week DLM have delivered a custom built 14t Telemetry Tensile link to an adventure park with the fastest zip wire in the world and the longest in Europe. The park will be using the link to measure tension on wire rope. The link, which is assembled at the start of the zip wire, is implemented as a safety factor to measure the peak load that can be applied to the zip line. Using internal strain gauges the link will measure the load and then wirelessly transmit this information across a distance of up to 2.4miles to a display at the end of the zip line.

DLM Tensile link pictured above was built with a Peli case display and transmitter box to house the long range telemetry electronics. The unique feature about this product compared to our standard 14t telemetry tensile link is the range that stretches over 2.4miles in comparison to our standard 200m range. The product underwent numerous range tests locally here in the New Forest before it was delivered to the park last week.

Mike Sprague, Operations Manager at DLM comments ‘The customer first came to us with a brief spec of what they needed to achieve, following which we set about adapting one of our standard products to ensure the load could be read on a Peli case display up to 2.4miles away. It is really exciting to see our load cells being used for different applications, being able to solve the clients’ problem and deliver a first class product to their specification. We can’t wait to see the pictures of the load cell in use!’

DLM specialise in custom building not only load cells but also load monitoring and electronic systems to client’s exact requirements. Our multi skilled engineering team consist of electronic, mechanical and systems engineers with over 40 years of combined designed experience in a multitude of industries including lifting, offshore, oil and gas, subsea and industrial.
