tower cable linesStructural wires are constantly exposed to the hostile weather elements throughout their in service life. Constantly in motion and under stress it is important to frequently service the tension to ensure safety and longevity of service life of these wires.
The tension in the diagonal guy-wire, combined with the compression and buckling strength of the structure, allows the structure to withstand lateral loads such as wind or the weight of cantilevered structures.

Wire ropes are complex; composition, size, construction, type of core and lay all need to be considered. A 1x7 rope behaves differently to a 7x19 or 6x36 rope; even wire ropes of the same diameter will calibrate differently because of varying rigidity.

So, when the guy wires retaining communication towers & flare stacks, pre-tensioned cable barriers, elevator cable maintenance, overhead electric transit wires, catenaries, fall arrest systems or utility cables need fast and accurate measurement of tension and line sage in situ then look no further than the Straightpoint Clamp on Line Tensionmeter or COLT. COLT Brochure

Supplied with a Bluetooth smart phone (Android or Apple iOS) load monitoring app that contains an infinite wire rope library the COLT measures tension on wire rope up to 11,000 lbf / 5,000 kgf and up to 1 inch / 25mm diameter.

Fully adjustable, it clamps onto pre-tensioned wire ropes, eliminating the need for additional sheaves or tooling, as is the case with alternative solutions available on the market.
