Pull Cable Tension Monitor helps prevent errors for contractors.

July 19, 2016

Preventing cable overstretch that can lead to faulty cable installation, touchscreen-operated G-Series Smart Pull produces physical, visual, and audible alerts to let contractors know when pulling force of cable exceeds 80% of manufacturer recommendations. Second alert is given when pulling force has met 100% of tension limit (10,000 lb max). Stored directly in 128 MB onboard memory, information obtained during pull can be exported via onboard USB port or emailed via PullCalc app. Read More
