Cable Tensiometer Calibration

Cable tensiometers — also called wire tension meters or tension gages — are common wherever equipment or structures need wire cables or rope for safety and support. Many applications in structural engineering utilize tensiometers to ensure the appropriate tension in wires, including utility lines, bridges, hydroelectric dams and more. Other typical applications include aircraft, radio towers, ship masts, wind turbines and various types of rooftop equipment.

How to Calibrate a Cable Tensiometer

Depending on the specific equipment type, there are various methods for calibrating tensiometers, from using the bucket method and weights for basic instruments to employing specialized force calibration equipment for more specialized devices. Our technicians use the most accurate techniques to verify the device’s measuring capabilities, allowing our clients to maintain safe operations while complying with applicable local or industrial regulations. We can perform fast and reliable calibration for nearly any instrument design, including devices from some of the industry’s most trusted manufacturers.

Because cable tensiometers can become less precise from overstretching, physical damage or spring corrosion, calibrating your instrument regularly is critical. Even though the calibration adjustments are sometimes minimal, precision is critical for applications depending on these devices for structural integrity and employee safety.

When a device reflects an inaccuracy, our technicians make the proper adjustments to remedy the error and retest the instrument to ensure precise calibration.
