Southwire’s smart tensiometer enables a user to obtain rope tension, pulling speed, pull distance and sidewall pressure data wirelessly. The display unit stores up to 16 gigabytes of data and has a USB port. The load-sensing unit attaches to a cable puller and is calibrated up to 10,000 lbs. with most pulling rope sizes. Using the display unit’s features, users can name each pull, input the parameters of the pull, enter rope size and set the tension limit. The display unit will flash an alert if the maximum tension is about to be exceeded.
