Abstract
A remote control wire rope inspection prototype, using establishment electromagnetic scanning technology, was developed as a method of assessing the condition of cables used in log yarding systems. This electromagnetic wire rope inspection system could result in better utilization of cable life and reduced costs associated with skyline replacement and cable changeover. This report describes the development process and the potential economic benefits of this system.
