Spanmaster manual cableway

The Span Master  SMK1 Travellerway is our latest innovation to  perform water discharge measurement using ADCP technology. The unit was designed to aid in water discharge measurement where simple cableway installation is required to drive the ADCP across the river and back. The span master consists of a manual winch fixed to the operating side post.  The winch is manually operated at a desired speed by the operator
