The CTM Wire Rope Tension Meter quickly measures tension in wire ropes, wire guardrails, guy lines, guy wires and overhead wires. It installs quick and easy and is ready for measuring in seconds. The digital loadcell is highly accurate and this wire rope tension meter requires no lookup or correction tables.

Quick and easy to use Wire Rope Tension Meter
The CTM can be placed on a cable, measure its tension, and removed in under five seconds! There are no complex lookup tables, no conversion charts. The operator can quickly select from 15 different cable sizes and types stored in the CTM's memory. The Check-Tensioning mode graphically displays the current and target tensions for extremely quick setting of line tension. Even the infrequent battery changes are quick.

Broad Application
This Wire Rope Tension Meter can be used for many applications. Typical applications include tower and stack guy wires, pretensioned wire barriers, bridges, elevators, winch ropes, prestressed concrete, fall arrest systems, aircraft cables and utilities.

What Size Sheaves should be Purchased?
Three sheave sizes are available. For most applications one sheave set for the entire assortment of wire they tension will be sufficient. If you need to check tension in both 3/16" and 3/4" rope, then they should order two sheave sets. The operator must use the appropriate sheave set for the wire size and calibration stored. Changing sheaves sets takes about two minutes with the included wrench.
