Tension Dynamometer



Tension Dynamometer is a type of tension-measuring device for straight-line rigging and lifting applications. Dynamometers are ideal for measuring tension because they are lighter and more compact than crane scales, making them easier to set up and use. They are also easy to transport, making them ideal for load tests and elevator certification where they must quickly and accurately measure tension. Similar to other scales, dynamometers contain strain gauge load cells that measure changes in an electrical signal as force is applied to a system. This change in electrical signal is then displayed as a weight reading.

Dynamometers can be used as short-term substitutes for crane scales in some applications where bridging and trolleying while under load is not required. While dynamometers can be used like cranes scales for tension applications, their exposed load cell and small range of movement lead to reduced durability when used in traditional bridge-crane lifting applications with frequent duty cycles.
