Controlled Cable Tensioning

Recommended models for this application:
RON 2000 Shackle, RON 2125 Shackle, RON 2150 Shackle, RON 2501 Shackle
Relevant option: RS-232

Dynamometer, Hanging Scale, Load Cell, Crane Scale Overhead electricity and communication lines often change their length due to temperature changes. These changes could lead to cable failure.
Using Cable load meters and dynamometers for controlled cable tensioning and measuring cable tension enables cable tension control, which solves the problem.

The same need to reach optimal cable tension also exists in other applications where optimal tensioning is important for stabilization of structures.
For example: Suspension bridges and structures that are stabilized and supported by guy wires.

Cable load meters require features that will make them suitable for working on-site and especially for measuring and controlling cable tension.

RON dynamometers and cable load meters have several unique features that make them suitable for cable tension control:

RON dynamometers and cable tension meters are especially portable thanks to their small dimensions, light weight and the small, optional carrying cases.
This particular feature makes the RON dynamometers and cable tension meters suitable for working on-site, especially for cable tension test and measuring applications.
For example, the small dimensions and light weight of RON systems enable electricity company personnel to carry them easily when climbing electricity poles for measuring and controlling cable tension during overhead line installation.

RON dynamometers and cable tension meters are especially convenient for working on-site since in addition to their portability, they also have disposable batteries lasting 2000 hours.

Another advantage of the RON dynamometers and cable load meters which makes them especially suitable for measuring tension and cable tension control is their standard remote display (which in some models is a removable display).
The remote display enables users to read the results conveniently from a safe distance which increases safety.
The same need to reach optimal cable tension also exists in other applications where optimal tensioning is important for stabilization of structures. For example: Suspension bridges and structures that are stabilized a nd supported by guy wires.
