Vancouver International Airport (IATA: YVR) has installed a wiring pilot project from Netherlands-based Impleo Solutions preparatory to introducing continual operation of its dynamic stop bars.
(Stop bars that are turned on and off in this way are referred to as dynamic stop bars.)
Normal entrances at both ends of the runways and three runway crossings have dynamic stop
bars, while the other exits are controlled by static stop bars with mandatory no-entry signs.
The brake's tapered roller bearings are engineered to endure high thrust and side loads, and can survive a minimum of five dynamic stops

. Originally designed for articulated front-end loaders, the brakes ate also designed for use on feller bu nchers, log skidders, dump trucks, and other vehicles.
* The plate brake has the capacity to handle repeated dynamic stops
