1.4 The Working Principle

The determination of rope force is classified into two types: intrusive and non-intrusive. The so-called intrusive force test refers to that at the ends of or in the middle of the rope, after having it cut, attach it to a pull sensor, and read out the rope force directly, which is one of the most accurate and visualized method of measuring force, as is shown in the following diagram 1 and 2.

1-20030ZJ15C12.jpg

( Diagram 1)

1-20030ZJ433M0.jpg

( Diagram 2)

This force testing method requires large investment; only applies to pilot studies and a few projects that have huge tonnage and high requirements. It does not apply to pre-stressed structural projects with large amount of rope layout.

The non-intrusive force measuring method is also divided into two kinds, one is the vibration frequency measurement method, namely, there are function relations between the rope self-vibration period T and the rope inner tension H, between the rope length L and the rope quality W. Through the formula it can be known that if the rope vibration period T is measured, the rope inner tension H can be calculated. The principle is relatively simple, but in the process of transforming the vibration into signals, and then exporting rope pull value through computer processing, more instruments and equipment are required and it is more difficult for workers to grasp. Besides, it is inconvenient for high-altitude operations. In addition, the supporting conditions at the rope ends have influence on the vibration cycle, and also on the force measurement accuracy. Another principle of rope force measurement is based on principles of mechanics. As is shown in the following diagram, there are function relations between the horizontal displacement δ of rope force and the pull H, between the horizontal force P and the length of the rope. Under the condition that displacement keeps a certain values, the more the rope pull H, the greater the horizontal force P.

( Diagram 3)

Using force sensor output the horizontal force P, after the microprocessor treatment into force, liquid Crystal Display: The above principle is also relatively simple, but the relation between the horizontal force and the rope force, is still relevant to the rope diameter, the cross-section structure, the rope extending rate and the degree of the pull. We can obtain exact and stable rope force through amendments of the microprocessor and precise calibration and so forth. It has reached the level of similar foreign products through trial and testing.

Special wire ropes can be calibrated according to customer’s requirements.

Note: In testing ,put the top point towards the positioned block,and press the tested wire rope on the compression block tightly.

4.2 Loosen the locking handle , put the wire rope into the instrument(The pulley should be in full contact with the wire rope),tighten the locking handle so that the pulley seat move upwards to press the tested wire rope tightly,so that the wire rope can be full contact with compression block , Show as the picture 10. Enter into “PEAK” setting to choose measuring mode.

4.3Tighten the handle ,put the wire rope into the compression block tightly,the value show on the screen is the tension force .
