1 Ton Dynamometer


Dynamometers: overview

The term dynamometer, aka “dynos” for short, covers several types of related yet distinct pieces of equipment. All are mechanical devices used to measure force, torque, or power, yet how they do this can be significantly different. 

For example, absorption/inertia dynamometers are used to measure power or torque directly, while transmission dynamometers use gears and linkage systems for measurement. There are also hydraulic dynamometers that measure the power output of engines, eddy current dynamometers that use electromagnetic induction to measure engine or motor performance, and others.

And, of course, there are tension or crane dynamometers that are used to measure loads during lifting operations or tension in various applications.

The 1-ton dynamometer: uses and applications

Load testing

A 1-ton dynamometer is commonly used for load testing, ensuring that cranes and other lifting equipment can safely handle their specified loads. This is crucial for compliance with safety regulations and standards.

Material Handling

When lifting heavy materials or equipment, a dynamometer can provide real-time measurements of the applied force, allowing operators to ensure that the load remains within the crane’s safe working limits.

Tension monitoring

In applications where maintaining a specific tension is critical, such as in cable or wire installation, a dynamometer can be employed to monitor and control the tension in real time.

Safety checks

Routine checks using a 1-ton dynamometer help identify any issues with the crane's lifting capacity or the integrity of the lifting gear, contributing to overall safety in construction and industrial settings.

Dynamic load monitoring

1-ton dynamometers with dynamic load monitoring capabilities can be used to assess the impact of sudden movements or shifts in load during lifting operations, helping to prevent overloading and potential accidents.

Shipping and rigging

In logistics and rigging applications, a dynamometer ensures that loads being lifted onto trucks or ships meet the weight specifications and that the lifting equipment is functioning correctly.


In mining, where large loads are moved regularly, dynamometers play a crucial role in assessing and optimizing the efficiency of lifting operations and equipment.

Eilon Engineering dynamometers: basic specs

A 1-ton dynamometer is a great tool. But different applications call for different capacities. That’s why we offer a line of dynamometers that range from 0.5 to 300 tons.

Here are specs for some popular sizes.

1-ton dynamometers

1-ton dynamometers are incredibly lightweight and portable. This capacity dynamometer has countless uses: from weighing fishing nets, to load monitoring stage equipment and more.

1.4 kg

10-ton dynamometers: length

7.7 inches

195 mm


150-ton dynamometers

When it comes to large capacity systems, the 150-ton dynamometer is a popular size. Though strong enough to lift a full-grown adult blue whale—the largest animal to ever live—this dynamometer still keeps headroom loss to a minimum while remaining as lightweight as possible.




150-ton dynamometers: weight

121 pounds

57 kg

150-ton dynamometers: length

22.6 inches

575 mm
