Wire Tension Meters

Tension Meters

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.

Keeping proper tension on assorted wires, cables and ropes is vital for safety and for keeping up with routine maintenance on many kinds of machines and systems. Tension meters are used to ensure proper tension throughout these machines’ operation.

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. The meters, which can often be handheld, accurately assess the operation tension of a particular rigging by attaching it on the loaded cable or wire.

When a reaction to a deflecting force occurs, the frame will proportionally bend to the tension in the member. You’ll then receive a readout of this activity on the digital display of the meter.

Cooper Instruments offers a range of different products with varying capabilities to address the wide needs of our clients. From aircraft meters that can measure between 20-500 pounds to wire tension meters that can attach to 15 types of wires, we can supply the right fit for you and your requirements.
