CBM Cable Tension Meter - CableBull

Made in Germany
For material diameters: 7 Models up to 46 mm Diameter (up to 1-3/4")
Capacities up to 20,000 Kg (44,000lbs or 200kN)

The new Cable Bull CBM Cable Tension Meter is a new innovative solution for hand-held portable tension measurement. The unique design allows for measurement of any material diameter between 1 up to 46 mm without custom programming or setup. Suitable for use on all types of materials including wire rope, synthetic cable, bare or insulated wires.

CBM-SR8 for samples diameters 1 - 8 mm
CBM-SR12 for sample diameters 4 - 12mm
CBM-SR16 for sample diameters 8 - 16 mm
CBM-SR22 for sample diameters 14 - 22 mm
CBM-SR30 for sample diameters 20 - 30 mm
CBM-SR38 for sample diameters 28 - 38 mm
CBM-SR46 for sample diameters 36 - 46 mm

Designed for measuring wires & cables that are anchored/fixed at both ends (closed system) as well as running lines. Also commonly used on Kevlar, fiberglass and other hi-strength materials when used in a similar applications. This CBM can also be considered a Rope Tension Meter designed to measure the static tension in wire ropes, cables, guy wires, belts, ...

Applications include guy wires, support cables, tethers, elevator load measuring, tension equalization in elevator ropes, rope sets, service lifts inside wind turbine systems, tensioning, protecting cranes and hoists from overload, tension measurement in stay ropes / cables, suspension ropes and railway catenary ropes, vehicle pull test, for safe loading in material handling, load securing control, tension control of lashing straps, equalize loadings on multi-cable assemblies, and much more.

Features

  • No calibration or programming required for specific cable diameter or wire construction
  • Sophisticated roller geometry allows the CBM to measure with an error of less than 1%.
  • Choice of "front side" or "rear side" position of Lever-Lock mechanism which opens and closes the measuring system
  • High precision fabrication from Stainless Steel and Aluminum for trouble-free use even in the toughest in-field applications
  • Connects to lightweight, battery-powered tension indicator for maximum portability and ease of use
  • Can be used on cable diameters below and above specified range with only small additional inaccuracy
