Cooper Instruments offers a wide variety of wire tension meters for measuring the tension on aircraft cables, strapping materials and guy wires. The cables or material must be flexible. Tension ranges run from 0-1000 grams all the way up to 0-10,000 lbs. Cooper may require you to send a sample of your cable to us to ensure a proper calibration.

Many industries require wire tension meters to make sure the crucial wires and cables in their operations function. Just a few of the businesses we often sell to are aerospace, laboratories, automotive and more. If you can’t find what you’re looking for in the extensive collection on our website, give us a call at 1-800-344-3921 or 540-349-4746 — our customer service representatives will help you find the perfect equipment for your needs. If that doesn’t work, we’ll modify existing wire or cable tension meters to meet your required specifications or OEM standards.
