A rugged, lightweight portable field tension meter which measures line tensions - without breaking into the line.

Operation is based on measuring cable deflection caused by the application of a constant force mid-way between two pulley supports. Cable tensions are then determined to an accuracy of ± 1% by referring to a calibration chart especially prepared for the cable size and type being measured.

*Actual tension range depends on the type of material being tested. Values shown are for average mild steel wire rope. Select model by cable diameter.


  • Dial Range of 0 - 100 units, Requires customer to create calibration conversion chart
  • Supplied in hard shell plastic carrying case
