Types of clamp-on tension meters
Dillon/Quality Plus offers a variety of clamp-on tension meters, including the Dillon QuickCheck and Straightpoint COLT.
Dillon QuickCheck tension meters can be installed in under five seconds and can quickly measure tension in cable guardrails, guy lines, and overhead wires. They are handheld, lightweight tools with digital loadcells that are highly accurate and require no lookup or correction tables.
Common applications of Dillon QuickCheck tension meters include tower and stack guy wires, pretensioned cable barriers, bridges, elevators, winch rope, overhead electric transit wires, fall arrest systems, aircraft cables, and utilities. Dillon offers the QuickCheck 2,000 lb, the QuickCheck 10,000 lb, the QuickCheck-T Bluetooth, and the QuickCheck-T Bluetooth for the cell tower industry.
The Straightpoint COLT tension meter is a digital clamp-on line tension meter that uses Bluetooth technology to allow the user to transmit data wirelessly to any smart device. It is lightweight, easy to use, and commonly used on wires that are already under tension. The Colt also gives access to a full library of cables already calibrated & stored to the unit via downloading from the Cloud.
