STRAND
TENSIONMETER/DYNAMOMETER
Product Description
Commonly referred to as a Strand Dynamometer, the Strand Tensionmeter is used in
tensioning new strand and in measuring the tension in existing strand. Assures that utilities
maintain proper cable clearances to comply with all requirements specified in the National
Electric Safety Code's Uniform System of Clearances.

• Is a precision instrument which can quickly measure tensions of 1/4 in. (6.6 M) Extra High
Strength, 5/16 in. (6 M), 3/8 in. (10 M) and 7/16 in. (16 M) Utilities Grade, zinc coated guy
wires and messenger cables per ASTM A-475

• No battery to run down and let you down-100% mechanical.

• One piece construction measures all sizes. No saddles to loose.

• Used on strands having less than 10,000 lbs. of tension

• The Tension meter measures tension in pounds force with an average accuracy of plus or
minus 3%. The maximum error magnitude can be the greater of 7% or 150 pounds force with
a 3% frequency.

• This plated steel instrument measures the force required to deflect the strand to an out of
line position, registering this force on an integral dial

• Is furnished with an analog thermometer, temperature compensation charts, detailed
instructions and a hard shell plastic carrying case cushioned with foam rubber for protection

• A registered serial number is stamped on each handle

Strand tension readings may be taken at any convenient point in the span. The actual strand
tension is easily determined by referring to the furnished calibration chart. The user converts
the dial indicator reading into the tension value.

The data on the chart indicates the dial reading of the tensionmeter corresponding to the
amount of strand tension, in 100 pound increments, for the normal tension range of each
strand size. To ensure accurate measurements of different ambient temperature conditions,
take a temperature reading with your thermometer and refer to the temperature compensation
charts.

B Strand Dynamometers.

01190
Product Description
Used to calculate the "break" or deflection angle in
utility pole lines

The stainless steel shaft screws into the angle pole
and the sighting arm is set to 0 degrees on the
protractor.
A sight is taken on a pole in one tangent then the
sighting arm is rotated and a sight is taken on the
pole in the second tangent.
The deflection angle is then read on the protractor to
the nears degree.
Comes with a durable, stitched cowhide case
