Dynamometer in Life Safety operation
What do you all think about the use of a dynamometer in a life safety application (ie inline with anchors, highlines, etc...)
The dynamometers I'm looking at have a 5:1 SSF with a 2000 to 5000 lb rating (proof tested to 1.5x rating, Dillon AP series). This would put failure in the 10k - 25k range above most other components of the system. However, since many dynos aren't specifically rated for life safety is this a big no-no or is this a non issue. Since many of these dynos are being used specifically in crane applications that do end up having a man basket attached that becomes life safety... I know the dynos at work for aerial testing are calibrated every year, is this all that's needed?
Are there special shackles that are rated for human loads?
I'll stop rambling now, let me know your thoughts.
