MTIMH and TIMH are Running Line Tensiometers (tension sensors) for dockside, marine, offshore, towage and salvage applications. It is particularly useful where there is no anchor or dead end on the line to rig a Radiolink or Loadlink digital dynamometer to measure tension force at speeds up to 20m/min or 65ft/min.

The MTIMH/TIMH is fabricated from corrosion resistant stainless steel featuring a five (5) sheave arrangement keeping the cable under tight control as it weaves its way thru the sheaves. This greatly enhances accuracy and repeatability. These sheaves feature maintenance-free bearings. The sensor's load pin housing is rated at IP67 (Nema 6) making it suitable for use in the harshest environments and featuring a full-scale accuracy of ±2%.

Two versions of the TIMH are available:
- Long range 2.4GHz version providing an industry-leading wireless range of 1000m / 3280ft to SP's SW-HHP handheld or software options.
- Bluetooth output for connection any device running our free HHP app available for iOS or Android at ranges up to 100m or 328ft.

"T" models feature cabled output of tension "TR" models feature wireless output of tension "TRD" models feature wireless output of both tension and payout out/in (length)

We can also provide cabled versions with Analog out (0-10V DC, 4-20mA) or custom-engineered solutions for your specific application.

Available as a wireless or cable connected system utilizing our HHP range of handheld displays or SW-MWLC software, this impressive Running Line Dynamometer or RLTM is available to ship to anywhere in the world within days.
