Simple reliable design.
Prevents stress and breaking cables.
Designed to continually monitor tension loads on wire rope.
Tensiometers are put to use on mobile cranes.
Drilling rigs to measure drill bit pressure.
Towing applications for ships or the fishing industry.
The design is simple. Three precision roller bearing sheaves are mounted in a rigid frame. The rope to be monitored is threaded through the sheaves. As tension increases the centre sheave applies pressure against the load pin load cell. This force is transmitted as an electrical signal to the display as a direct reading of the line tension.
