The CTM2 Wire Rope Tension Meter quickly measures tension in zip lines, 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 CTM2 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 20 different cable sizes and types stored in the CTM2'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.
The CTM2 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.
The CTM2 is supplied as a complete kit including:
|* = Pre-stretched|
ACSR Cable - #2, #4, 1/O, 2/O, 4/O, 336 Oriole, 397, 556, 563 Penguin, 743 Chickadee, 997 Petunia, 795 Drake
Calibration load may be changed if desired. Higher calibration loads are limited by max. capacity of the sling. If the desired wire size/type does not appear, customer may supply 10 ft. sample of wire to determine if a custom calibration sling can be created (non-returnable). Consult factory for details.
