    Application Example:

    The technical staff of a well-known theatre in the UK wanted to monitor the loads imposed on the house grid by visiting productions. With a diverse range of incoming shows and fast turn-around times between shows, fast and simple deployment is paramount to effectively gather load data without interfering with the production’s setup process.

    The Solution:

    Using a kit of 4 x Wireless BroadWeigh shackles (BW-S325) and a BW-HR Wireless Handheld Display / reader the production manager is able to quickly assess distribution of load imposed be a productions setup as it is being suspended. After installing the shackles into the grid and then simply turning on the BW-HR wireless handheld the BroadWeigh shackles are instantly brought to life providing live readings of the rigging and the load it supports. Once the rigging is complete and the loads approved by the venue technical staff, the shackles can remain in situ for the duration of the production providing the ability for periodic checks as required via the wireless telemetry system.

    Application Example:

    Casino Rama, a major concert and event centre in Ontario, Canada, has a concert hall with a capacity of 5,000, safety of its guests, performers and staff is a top priority. They needed a load monitoring solution to ensure the correct balance of their rigging.

    The Solution:

    The BroadWeigh wireless USB base station extended range (BW-BSue), was used together with the BroadWeigh shackles, the wireless base station provides up to 800 meters range and the wireless data can be monitored by the technicians, up to 100 channels via the USB connection to a laptop. The technicians were incredibly impressed with the ease of use of the BroadWeigh system. “I would gladly recommend this system for any venue that is concerned with rigging overloads or incoming tours damaging the existing roof structures.” Said Derek Noble, Lead Lighting Technician at the Casino Rama Entertainment Centre. Prior testing of the BroadWeigh system’s wireless data transfer was carried out at the facility to prove stability of the platform and to be sure that the BroadWeigh signal was not interfering with or being affected by other wireless signals in the building. Casino Rama Entertainment Centre relies on numerous wireless communication systems for its daily operations, as well as incoming productions devices and the possible 5,000 mobile phone users who attend the concerts. “Initially I was concerned with interference due to the number of wireless systems already in the building but not anymore,” said Derek. “The communication was better than we expected. This (BroadWeigh) system enables us to know what production is rigging in terms of both the weight and balance of the loads. The price point per shackle meant we could purchase more load cells than the other systems we considered while still achieving the desired result.”

    The pre-calibrated BroadWeigh Wind Speed Sensor (BW-WSS) anemometer provides both real-time display and full logging of wind speeds. With user definable sampling rates and easy wireless installation this anemometer makes an ideal choice for general wind speed monitoring and action planning for outdoor events. On-location monitoring is a critical aspect of weather management in conjunction with regional weather reporting and prediction services. The BroadWeigh system offers supplier data processing and recording which enables the user to develop reports, trending and trigger peak speed alarms. The wind speed sensor constantly monitors average wind speeds over the range of 5 to 125 mph and can be configured to provide readings in a number of standard units including mph, fps, km/h and m/sec. It also measures gusts at user defined periods of 1, 3, 5 or 10 sec. The BW-WSS uses a low power mode between transmissions to maximise battery life (in excess of 12 months) in the field whilst offering class leading wireless coverage of up to 800 m (2,600 ft). When used in conjunction with Mantracourt’s BroadWeigh shackles and load monitoring software (BW-LOG100), the combined system can provide directly correlated data of guy-wire and storm-brace tensions in relation to wind speed conditions. This means that wind speed ratings and rigging components within a tent or staging structure can be closely monitored and action can be taken prior to failures occurring. This is especially useful in conjunction with LED video wall rigging, PA towers, roof canopies, marquee tents and other temporary de-mountable structures. The anemometer is housed in an IP67 case & supplied with robust fixing bracket, featuring a high quality 3-cup rotor pressed on a stainless steel shaft with rugged Delrin body with bronze Rulon bushings. This operates alongside the whole range of BroadWeigh devices such as base stations, handheld displays, analogue output, relay modules, GPRS data loggers and more, and is designed and built on Mantracourt’s BroadWeigh 2.4 GHz wireless technology.

    • Rugged enclosure 164 x 84 x 57 mm (excluding glands)

    Application Example:

    An outdoor events company were using a stage which had been designed with a canvas canopy mounted above the top of the stage. It was critical for the events manager to be able to monitor the stability of the canopy throughout the event, as the high wind forecast could exert a force on the canopy which could prove dangerous.

    The Solution:

    A BW-WSS wind speed sensor unit was attached to the top of the stage and powered using internal batteries. The unit was used to monitor the wind speed throughout the event on a wireless telemetry Broadweigh handheld. Giving the events manager portable visibility of wind speeds at a glance.
