The RTM 20D is a cable tensionmeter esspecially developped for the determinaton of (high) tension in cables like guy wires, support cables, architectual cables etc. The RTM 20D can be placed directly on the cable. De device will show the tension on the display.
The RTM 20D is suitable for measurements up to 44.000 Lbs (22 tons) and cable diameters up to 1.5". De measured values are directly shown on the display without use of a reference tabel.
Measuring principle: The RTM is placed on the cable under a pre defined angle. This angle is then used to determine the tension in the cable. Since the gauge is calibrated to the cable that is measured it will directly show the tension value. These calibrations can be saved inside the gauge and it is possible to save up to 10 different cable calibrations.Values can be displayed in N or Lbs
Safety: The RTM 20 determines quickly, safely, accurately and conveniently cable tension. It can withstand force two times its rated capacity without damage. The RTM features hardened steel cable guides which ensures trouble free operation in the toughest outdoor environments.
