Cable & Wire Rope Digital Tension Meter

Safely install or monitor cables, wire rope, and other materials with a Tensitron CX-1 tension meter. Achieve consistent tension to avoid mechanical stresses, and minimize the risk of damage on cables. Use CX-1 tension meters to measure the tension for catenary systems, elevator maintenance, telecommunications cables, guy wire, zip lines, theater rigging, and more. Check the tension on flexible cables from 1/16 inch to ¾ inch in diameter.
