Hornet Automatic Cableway System
Model Hornet/Hornet Plus/Hornet SS
The Hornet, Hornet Plus & Hornet SS have been developed to perform riverand stream discharge measurements from fixedcableways using an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP), mechanical current meters & sediment sampling accordingly. The Hornet is an ideal solution for retro fitting to an existing manned cableway system, thus minimizing the personal injury risk associated with this type of gauging.
The Hornet is operated from the bank of the stream. Using a wireless remote control, which incorporates the latest state of art electronics and Radio Controlled Systems, the operator canmaneuver the traveler block & hoist by the push of a switch to traverse across the span to be measured. Once into position, the meter is lowered to commence measurement.
The Control System operates an electric motor fitted with incremental encoder to drive the carriage andhoist from the operating side to the far side of the river and back to the start point. There is also an incorporated proximity and inclinometer to correct for cable sage and an inbuilt tilt sensor in the hoist to correct for the angle of dry and wet line to give automatically corrected water levels.
