CBM Cable Tension Meter


Made in GermanyThe new Cable Bull CBM Cable Tension Meter is a technical innovation for mobile tension measurement. The various models allow for measurement on any material diameter between 1 and 46mm without custom programming or setup.

Designed for measuring wires & cables (skids) that are anchored/fixed at both ends (closed system) such as guy cables, support cables, tethers and more as for open force cables (rollers) that stay under tension by spring or counter weight, like catenary ropes for railways and trams. The CableBull is also commonly used on Kevlar, fiberglass and other hi-strength materials when used in a similar applications. This CBM can be considered a Rope Tension Meter designed to measure the static tension in wire ropes, cables, belts, ...

The CBM employs a unique roller configuration and measurement scheme to minimize the deflection of the wire/cable. The total wrap angle of the material over the center sensing roller is 3 degrees eliminating all measurement errors!

Applications include 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
  • Sophisticated roller geometry allows the CBM to measure with an error of less than 2%.
  • No calibration or programming required
  • High precision fabrication from Stainless Steel and Aluminum for trouble-free use even in the toughest in-field applications
  • Choice of "front side" or "rear side" position of Lever-Lock mechanism which opens and closes the measuring system
  • Connects to lightweight, battery-powered tension indicator for maximum portability and ease of use
  • Can be used with rollers or skids on moving and not moving cables

CBM is suitable for the following applications
