Static or running rope
SENSY has developed a complete range of tensiometers. These force sensors are intended to measure the tension force applied to a wire rope or rope fibre without having to disassemble it. There are two types:
- Static line tensiometers intended to be mounted on fixed cables.
In order to choose the required tensiometer, you must know the tension force and diameter of the cable.
- Running-line tensiometers to be mounted on running cables or running ropes.
The force measurement can then be supplemented by a measurement of the winding speed and displacement (pay-out). This type of sensor is also available with a removable center sheave to facilitate (dis)mounting.
A minimum of three parameters must be known in order to define the type of sensor you need: the force, the cable diameter, and the winding speed.
In addition, SENSY offers electronics that simultaneously display tension force, speed and displacement.
SENSY also offers a complete range of tension and compression (annular) load cells, such as load-measuring wedge sockets or load shackles to measure the tension force at the point of cable attachment.
