Digital Aircraft Cable Tension Meter

Keep aircraft flying safely with Tensitron aircraft tension meters. ACX-1 meters are the fastest, easiest way to verify accurate cable tension. Get your aircraft off the ground and into the air with maximum performance and safety, minimum cost and time. Tensitron instruments are designed to quickly check the tension on aircraft cables from 1/16 in. to ¼ in., CWT cable sizes from 5 to 25, and metric cables from 2.0mm to 4.0mm. Calibrations for other cable sizes are available upon request.
