To maximize productivity and ensure the safety of your crane operations, APRS World, LLC, offers the Crane Wind Speed Logger. Bolted to the tip of the crane, our Crane Logger provides data logging for historical records of wind conditions and live data for safety and operational decisions. Our design philosophy is that data is most important. Data is downloaded wirelessly from a laptop computer running the supplied software. No cables to run. With an optional in cab Wind Speed Display, live data can be viewed by the crane operator.
