Tensiometer incorporates wireless communication capability.

March 4, 2014

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. Calibrated up to 10,000 lb, load sensing unit pairs wirelessly and automatically with display unit. Read More

Tension Meter measures elevator wire rope tension.

April 20, 2010

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 ½, 9/16, and 5/8 in. wire rope sizes, meter comes with one set of sheaves ranging from ¼-¾ in. Read More

Belt Tension Meter helps optimize transmission performance.

January 28, 2010

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 calculated. Optional evaluation software lets user store and report measured values. Read More

Tension Meter withstands washdown environments.

January 5, 2007

Digital Tension Meter (DTM) displays web tension in applications where access to control parameters is not required or inconvenient for operator. LCD readout features 0.6 in. red digits and selectable decimal point. To ensure operation in wash-down or dusty environments, meter is constructed with high-impact plastic case and sealed front panel. DTM features DIN rail mounts and simplified wiring connections to facilitate installation. Read More

Wire Tension Meters ensure part accuracy.

December 19, 2006

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 material being tested. Units automatically power off after 10 min on non-use.

Digital Meter measures cable tension.

November 15, 2005

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 3/16-¾ 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 offers on-board storage for up to 15 calibrations. Read More
