QB-10000 Elevator Cable Tension Meter

The QB-10000 Elevator Cable Tension Meter is no longer available and has been replaced by CTM2.
Click here to see the CTM2.

The QB-10000 Tension Meter provides a quick and easy way to accurately measure and display all of the elevator traction cable tensions in a set while the tension on a single cable is being adjusted. This makes it extremely easy to balance the tensions of cables in a set of elevator cables or any other multiple-line array of tension cables, such as tower and stack guy wires, crane rigging sets and platform lifts, etc. The digital display also shows the average tension of the set as well as the total tensile load.

The QB-10000 installs easily, measures cable tension up to 10,000 lbs directly, stores readings and is removed from the cable in seconds. No lookup or reference to correction or conversion charts is required. Writing down measurements for comparison purposes is also not required.

Balancing the tensions on a set of cables takes minutes instead of hours and can be done by a single person, working alone, instead of two or three.

Complete Kit
The QC-10000 Quick Balance tension meter is supplied as a complete kit including 10,000lb Capacity Wire Tension Meter, 3 pre loaded calibration: 1/2" 8 x 19, 9/16" 8 x 19, 5/8" 8 x 19, 1/4" to 3/4" Sheave Set code S & Carrying Case.

Optional Sheaves
It makes sense to take advantage of the range for the sheaves. Quick-Balance comes standard with Code "S" Sheaves.
Below you find the other option:
QB-10000 - Code L Sheaves for 3/16" to 1/4" / 4.75 mm - 6,5 mm
QB-10000 - Code P Sheaves for 3/16" to 1/2" / 4.75 mm - 12.7 mm
QB-10000 - Code S Sheaves for 1/4" to 3/4" / 6.5 mm - 19 mm
QB-10000 - Code T Sheaves for 1/2" to 1" / 12.7mm - 25.4 mm

The operator must use the appropriate sheave set for the wire size and calibration stored.

Changing sheave sets takes about two minutes.
