Tensitron is the original manufacturer of its products. The practices Tensitron follows when servicing and calibrating its tension measurement instrumentation are consistent with both ISO 9001:2015 and ISOQS-9000 standards and requirements.
As an original equipment manufacturer, we design and manufacture precision instrumentation for measurement of tension in cables, straps, wires and filaments.
Additionally, as the OEM, we certify the instrumentation systems that we manufacture. This is consistent with the Quality System Requirements in QS-9000, Third Edition, paragraph 4.11.2.b.1. QS-9000, paragraph 4.11.2.b.1 “Calibration Services” contains the following note:
“Where a qualified laboratory does not exist for a given piece of equipment, calibration services may be performed by the original equipment manufacturer.”
In accordance with the above standards, Tensitron provides calibration and certification services to our customers so they can conform to ISO standards. To ensure compliance with the intent of Guide 25 and its replacement ISO/IEC FDIS 17025, all calibrations are performed according to documented internal procedures using standards that are fully traceable directly to NIST. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact us at 303-702-1980.

ROHS & REACH Information
Tensitron’s instrumentation is compliant to the RoHS EU Directive 2011/65/EU and the RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU and EU ROHS amendment 2015/863/EU.
All of Tensitron’s handheld digital tension meters use rechargeable NiMH batteries (nickel-metal hydride) and include power supplies which can take input voltages from 100-240V and include several, interchangeable adaptors allowing for use with US, European, Australian, and other plug configurations. Tensitron meters provide consistent, repeatable cable tension readings to ensure that the towers are not damaged by the wind and maximum solar power is generated to keep the towers operating with limited human interface.
