Electronic tension load cell designed to measure effort applied to a wire rope without disassembling the rope.

This tension meter dynarope HF 36/3 LPT is an electronic load cell that has been designed to measure the effort applied in a wire rope without having to dismantle the installation.

The resulting signal generated by the sensor equipped with strain gauges is interpreted by a digital display controlled by a microprocessor.

The display of the program has a database that contains a list of cables. The user selects from the list the cable whose characteristics correspond to the one he wants to measure. (See details in § 4.4)

The display corrects the force information (raw effort) based on the characteristics of the cable to be measured. The measurement result is displayed on an LCD screen.

Features

  • Capacity : from 500 up to 40.000 daN
  • Diameters : from 20 up to 44 mm

  • Protection : IP 65
  • Size of the packaging HF 36/3/LPT : 860 x 560 x 355 mm
  • Weight of the HF 36/3/LPT in its transport case : 37 kg
  • Net weight of the device: 15 kg
  • Power supply : 3 "AA" alkaline cells (located into the display)
Dynarope with Remote Control

Note: for efforts above 20 tons, we strongly recommend to purchase the hydraulic assistance.

* Precision obtained with the provided cable samples on a “BELAC” accredited test bench according to the method PL-LAB-07

Data Bank HF 36/3/LPT

The Standard data bank includes several items that are identified by a "Reference Number".

Each reference corresponds to a calibration process carried out on a particular sample.

The measurement wire rope is deemed to have a minimum length of 8 m, and is assumed to be tensioned between a fixed end and a “flexible” end (e.g. an aerial mast) in order to render negligible the influence of placing the sensor on the cable. Placing the sensor on the wire rope causes a shorting of the wire rope by approximately 1,5 mm.

If the installation does not match the above description or if the cable you wish to measure does not appear in the list, we recommend that a custom calibration is carried out (see § 8.3) or that you order a specific calibration (see § 4.4).

LEMO connector is a « push-pull » connector.

The LEMO self-latching system allows the connector to be mated or unmated by simply pushing or pulling axially on the outer release sleeve.

Any rotation of the plug while in the socket will damage the connector and hence the connection between the sensor and the display.
