Tension Meter SY

2 Tension ranges from 200 - 1500 kg up to 400 - 3000 kg

Mechanical wire rope tension meter to determine the tension of overhead lines, tensioning ropes, contact wires, aerials, etc. up to max. 20 mm .
This hand-held unit is used for control and comparision measurement of pretensioned non running ropes.

Tension meter with large easy to read scale (100 mm )

Special Features

  • Tension meter for rope diameters up to 20 mm
  • Large easy to read scale (100 mm )

Standard Features

  • Rugged aluminium housing

Measuring Principle

With the two outer rollers, the device will be hooked into the strained rope. With a knurled screw, the middle roller will be brought in the measuring position. Operation is based on precisely measuring deflection, caused by the application of a force mid-way between two U-grooved pulley supports. Cable tensions are then determined by nothing the reading on a precision dial indicator that measures the deflection. The measuring result has to be converted from mm reading to the corresponding force in daN with the help of a conversion chart. The smalest rope length to be measured between two fixing points is 5 m.
