The Dillon Quick-Check Tension Meter quickly measures tension in cable guardrails, guy lines and overhead wires. It installs, measures and removes in seconds. The digital loadcell is highly accurate and requires no lookup or correction tables.
The Fastest Cable Tension Meter
The Dillon Quick-Check can be placed on a cable, measure its tension, and removed in under five seconds! There are no complex lookup tables, no conversion charts. The operator can quickly select from 20 different wire sizes and types stored in Quick-Check’s memory. The Check-Tensioning mode graphically displays the current and target tensions for extremely quick setting of line tension. Even the infrequent battery changes are quick.
The Quick-Check can be employed in many industries to ensure proper tensioning. Typical applications include tower and stack guy wires, pretensioned cable barriers, bridges, elevators, winch rope, overhead electric transit wires, fall arrest systems, aircraft cables and utilities.
Tension capacities: 10 kN/1000 kg or 45 kN/4500 kg
Wire sizes: 4.75 mm through 25.4 mm
Accuracy: + 3% instrument capacity (calibrated to specific wire size and type)
Loading error: Cable elongation of only 2mm
Display: Dot-graphic LCD display supports full text and 25mm high digits
Sheave range: Each set accommodates rated wire size and 12mm smaller. Multiple sheave sets may be used.
Suggested wire calibrations: Calibrate each wire diameter needed with the most appropriate sheaves. If two wire types are used of different diameters (e.g. 17-2.75 & 19-2.00), calibrate each type independently.
Environment protection: Suitable for continued outdoor use
Operating range: -20° C to 70° C
Tension units of measure: Pound-force, Kilogram force, Newtons
Resolution: Configurable low/med/high
Size: 250 x 590 x 80 mm
Weight: Approx 5 kg
Recalibration: At user discretion. Commonly 12-24 months; should be more frequent with heavy use.
