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.
