Line Tension Meters (Line Riders)

Follow us

Capable of measuring load, distance and direction with data logging functions, line riders are used in a variety of applications. This equipment is selected based on wire rope size and is available for both non-hazardous or zoned area requirements.

Wire Tension is monitored using a triple pulley arrangement, where the wire applies a force proportional to wire tension to the offset center pulley containing the load sensor.

The wire tension signal is transmited to teh readout instrument or system via integral 24v DC, 4-20ma output current transmitter.
