Controlled Cable Tensioning
Electricity line and communication towers, big tents and other structures that are supported by guy wires can be affected by changes in cable length attributed to to temperature changes. These changes could lead to cable failure.
Using cable load meters and dynamometers for controlled cable tensioning and measuring cable tension solves the problem.
Advantages of Ron Crane Scales and dynamometers that make them so suitable for cable tension measurements:
Small dimensions make them portable
High accuracy: 0.1% of full scale
Very long battery life: 2000h
90 degrees between shackle holes make them more accurate and safer
Made of aerospace quality steel
Standard remote indicator
Fatigue rated load cells
Reliable wireless communication
