Quick Balance Tension Meters
The Dillon Quick Balance tension meter quickly measures tension on lift traction cables or other cable sets, recording individual readings, averages and total readings. Quick Balance installs, measures and removes in seconds, giving accurate digital readings up to 10,000 lbs. No lookup or correction tables required, and no need to write down readings for comparisons.
The Fastest Cable Tension Meter
Quick Balance can be placed on a cable, measure its tension and removed in seconds! There are no complex lookup tables and no conversion charts. The operator can quickly select from dierent wire rope sizes and types stored in the Quick Balance memory. Once a set of measurements has been taken the operator can adjust various tensions in the check tensioning mode which displays both current and target settings of individual cables.
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: 2000 lb/10 kN/1000 kg10,000 lb/45 kN/4500 kg
Wire sizes: 3/16 inch through 1 inch
Accuracy: + 3% instrument capacity (calibrated to specific wire size & type + 5% with same wire diameter as calibrated but different wire type)
Loading error: Cable elongation of only 0.08 inch (2mm)
Display: Dot-graphic LCD display supports full text and 1 inch high digits.
Sheave range: Set accommodates rated wire size and ½” 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 the same diameter (e.g. ½” 1×7 and ½” 6×19), calibrate each type independently if accuracy is critical.
Environment protection: Suitable for continued outdoors use.
Operating range: -4°F to 140°F (-20°C to 60°C)
Tension units of measure: pound-force, kilogram force, Newtons.
Resolution: Configurable low/med/high
Recalibration: At user discretion. Commonly 24 months but should be more frequently with heavy use. Factory recalibrations conducted typically in 2-4 days. On-site recalibration may be possible through your Dillon distributor.
