Industrial Wire Tension Measurement

Application Summary
Wire tension measurement is an integral part for manufacturers of fibers, cables, and even textile fabrics. Industrial cable manufacturers utilize load cells to monitor the tensile forces of their cable.
Products in Use
In-Line Load Cell (LCM Series) paired with Instrumentation (IAA Series, IPM650, IHH500, USB Solutions). View Product Details

How it Works
  1. Utilizing FUTEK's LCM In-Line Load Cell, coupled with rod end bearings, provides any cable manufacturer with a high-endurance feedback solution.
  2. Due to its compact size, the LCM Series integrates easily into various cable tension applications.
  3. As the operator or manufacturer performs this particular cable tension test, results can then be displayed on various instruments or amplified utilizing an IAA Series Analog Amplifier.
  4. The analog output of the sensor can be taken to either of FUTEK's digital displays - the IHH500 Handheld or IPM650 Panel Mount - or digitally streamed to FUTEK's USB Solution.
  5. Pairing any of these instruments with FUTEK’s SENSIT Test and Measurement Software allows the collection of all the results.
  6. Note: For outdoor use, protection from the elements is required. FUTEK offers optional encapsulation to protect from moisture.
