Slingmax® Fiber Optic Inspection
For Twin-Path® Slings
Fiber Optic Inspection is an optional add-on for Twin-Path® slings. If crushing or heat damage has occurred to the sling, the fiber optic cable will no longer have the ability to transmit light from one end to the other. This indicates to the inspector that the sling should be removed from service and returned for factory inspection. The fiber optic cable will conduct light using natural, overhead, or flashlight sources.
Warning: Slings can fail if damaged, misused or overloaded. Inspect before use. Damaged sling shall not be used. Use only if trained. Do not exceed rated capacity. Protect sling from being cut by load edges, corners, protrusions and abrasive surfaces. Avoid exposure to acid, alkali and temperatures over 180°F. DEATH or INJURY can occur from improper use or maintenance.
