This International Standard defines the requirements for equipment, anchorage, supports and accessories for cableway systems for use in stream gauging. Systems which are operated either entirely from the river bank or from a suspended personnel carriage (also called a “cable car”) are discussed.
This International Standard is only applicable to the cableway systems to be used for hydrometric measurements. Should the cableway installation be required to be certified as lifting equipment, other standards or regulations may apply. This International Standard does not concern methods for making a discharge measurement which are described in ISO 748.
