PreventingÂ 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 whenÂ pulling force of cable exceeds 80%Â ofÂ manufacturerÂ recommendations.Â Second alert is given when pulling force has met 100% of tension limit (10,000 lb max). Stored directly in 128 MB onboard... Read More
Warrenton, VA Cooper Instruments Systems announced on Tuesday that they have expanded and updated their product line. The ACX-1 Aircraft Cable Tension Meter replaces the ACX, the TX-1 and LX-1 Digital Tension Meters have replaced the TX and LX, and the STX-1 Digital Strap Tension Meter takes the place of the STX. All of the new products feature updated technology and software versus their... Read More
Smart Tensiometer lets contractors wirelessly obtain rope tension, pulling speed, pull distance, and sidewall pressure data. User can save up to 16 GB of data to onboard memory, create reports, and send information. Pulling data can be streamed directly to computers, smart phones, and tablets for viewing in graph format either on unit's USB-enabled display or contractor's wireless device.... Read More
Suitable for loads up to 10,000 lb per wire rope, Quick Balance Tension Meter can attach to rope, measure tension, and be removed in seconds. Each individual reading can be compared to target settings stored in memory and displayed alongside current readings. Device also delivers average wire rope load data and features totalizer to provide overall elevator weight. Accommodating Â½, 9/16, and... Read More
With Trummeter Pro, users can measure belt tension of pulley-driven transmissions and adjust it accordingly. Device displays tension reading and also indicates if tension is too high or too low. When user induces slight vibration on drive belt, meter will detect vibration and estimate natural frequency of belt assembly. Together with belt mass and length of free belt strand, true force is...

Available in digital and analog models, Wire Tension Meters confirm wire tension on EDM is exact, preserving part integrity. Analog meters check tensions from 5-5,000 g and include internal magnetic dampening, which promotes balanced movement for accurate readings in any position. Able to be read in g, N, or lb, digital meters have back-lit display that indicates tension value, battery level, and... Read More
Quick-Check Tension Meter incorporates loadcell with LCD display that instantly calculates tension of guy wires, overhead wires, and elevator cables. With sheaves that accommodate rated wire sizes of 3/16-Â¾ in., lever-operated meter does not require manual calculation, lookup tables, or conversion charts and is available in 2 tension capacities up to 8,000 lb/35 kN/3,500 kg. Handheld unit... Read More
Model SM4 Universal Tension Meter measures frequency of all belt types, regardless of composition. It provides readings in range of 6-350 Hz Â±5% and is suited for setting up belt drive systems. Meter helps eliminate belt under- and over-tensioning, reducing wear, vibration, noise, and friction. Read More
MPT-100 Crimp Pull Test instrument certifies quality of crimping coax connectors and center pins to various lengths of coax cable. Tool makes ratchet-action destructive pull type force measurements to crimp-on coax connectors terminated cable samples, providing up to 200 lb force. Digital readout displays fail force point in 1/2 in. high digits. System consists of digital meter, tensile stress... Read More
RLT tensiometers coupled with force indicators provide real-time display and data capture of speed, distance, and tension for cable laying or winding/unwinding applications. 11 models are available with capacities from 20 lbs to 40,000 lbs. Units feature 3 roller bearing sheaves. Load cell transmits line tension as well as current peak, total distance traveled, and rate of travel, to indicator... Read More
