News & Updates: Running line monitor (RLM) – everything you need to know
What is a running line monitor?
Running line monitors (RLM), also known as running line dynamometers, electronically observe the load on a rope being payed-out (or in) by a winch or hoist and display this digitally. Our advanced RLM systems monitor load, speed and distance in real time and are available in ratings up to 300 tonnes. Easy to set up and use, individual units are designed to suit various wire rope sizes and load ratings, and are available for both safe and hazardous area applications.
Why use a running line monitor?
Running line monitors (RLM) are typically used in winch operations, such as mooring, to accurately measure and record line tension, improving the quality and efficiency of operations in challenging offshore conditions. Among the most robust on the market, our RLMs deliver optimal accuracy and reliability by using a 5-roller system, as well as offering real-time data logging.
Heavy duty running line monitor
Extreme environments demand supreme solutions. Our running line monitors (RLM) are specially designed to be corrosion resistant and suitable for various rope sizes and load ratings depending on your needs. The model’s rugged design, especially when paired with our award-winning SmartLoad® technology, makes it ideal for operations in hostile onshore and offshore environments, and can be used on wire rope, synthetic rope, dynema, fibre optic and other cable systems.
Hazardous area running line monitors, including ATEX and IECEx
Our blend of industry experience, innovation and application of knowledge continues to produce first-class technology. The end result is a powerful, precise and user-friendly RLM solution that is durable enough to use across a wide-range of applications.
Our running line monitors (RLM) are available with IECEx (international), ATEX (European and U.S). and Canadian hazardous area certification to provide full assurance.
