Cable Diameters - Up tp 30 mm (1.25")
The 136-3 hand-held tension meter is designed for use on cables, wire ropes and similar materials up to 30mm (1.25") diameter.
It is designed to minimize the effects of material rigidity and features a unique "tri-tens" system where the material can be threaded through the 3 rollers in 3 different paths.
Each threading pattern provides a different multiplying factor. For instance, assuming the Threading Pattern "D" below, (where all 3 rollers are on the same side), versus Threading Pattern "E", where one roller is on one side and 2 rollers are on the other side. Pattern "E" provides a multiplier of approximately 5x compared to threading Pattern "D".
This permits the user to use the most appropriate threading pattern based on the tensions required for a specific material. In other words, the same hand-held sensor can be considered to have 3 different capacities, (depending upon threading pattern "D", "E" or "F). For example, when using a 400 mm wide outer roller bracket.
• 100 Lb Capacity when using "D"
• 25 Lb Capacity when using "E"
• 15 Lb Capacity when using "F"
