The Bolt Cap Module (BCM) is a wireless system capable of automatically monitoring bolt preload during extended periods of operation. If the preload drops below a pre-determined level, a report will be automatically sent via email or GSM network to key stakeholders. This ensures maintenance is only conducted on bolts requiring attention, and allows immediate action to be taken on bolts installed in mission critical applications.
Working in conjunction with James Walker RotaBolt, we have designed the Bolt Cap Module. The product won an Innovation Award in 2015.
Transmission Dynamics are now delivering remote monitoring of seven M72 bolts on the Levenmouth demonstration turbine. An incredible IIoT application with implications across the onshore and offshore wind power industry. Our thanks to ORE Catapult and Wood plc. for their collaboration.
