Which cable tension meter should I choose to measure the cable tension of 0-3.5mm diameter?

To measure the tension of the cable, a cable tension meter needs to be used. When the wire diameter of the cable is different, a cable tension meter with a wire diameter compensator needs to be used for tension measurement. The cable tension meter with wire diameter compensation function on the market has a wire diameter compensation range of about 0-1.2mm. If tension meter doesn’t has diameter compensation function , No matter how large the wire diameter is, a special calibration method is required. If the specification of the cable within the diameter range of 0-3.5mm are Too many, and it would be very troublesome to measure without diameter compensation. You can choose the NTL series cable tension meter produced by Betten Technology Co., Ltd. NTL series has specially designed tension measuring head and wire diameter compensation device, which can fully meet the tension measurement in the range of 0-3.5mm wire diameter. The following is the specific information of NTL cable tension meter.

NTL series  

Special-purpose model tension meter with large-diameter guide wheel for cables, ropes, wires, buffer tubes, fibre strands etc. up to 15 mm Ø, as well as flat material up to 10 mm width

The NTL series has 5 kinds of tension ranging from25-2500.0cN to 0.2-20.00daN. Other ranges can be customized


1. The patented technology automatically resets the meter to zero , which improves the measurement accuracy and facilitates measurement.

2. Equipped with a wire diameter compensator, which compensates errors caused by different wire diameters and improves measurement accuracy

3. guide wheel movement structure, it is easy to capture the tested material.

4. V-groove aluminum measuring guide roller with ball bearing.

5. Rugged, non-slip aluminum case, resistant to electrical interference.

6. LIPO lithium-ion polymer battery (about 10 hours of continuous operation).

7. The tested material, the guide roller, and the screen are located on the same plane. During the test, the test data, the status of the guide roller and the tested material can be seen.

8. A maximum of 10 materials can be accurately calibrated. With the wire diameter compensator, the tested wire diameter range is larger.

9. character menu setting interface, easy to operate.

10. According to different ranges and needs, the measurement value display unit can be selected g, kg, c N, N, daN, lb

11. It can record the maximum value, minimum value, peak value and average value in the measurement process, and can also store 10 independent measurement values.

12. Programmable setting of the maximum and minimum value of the trend status bar, clearly determine the range of tension change, and have the advantages of mechanical instrument trend display.

13. Provides fine adjustment of display results. If There is a slight deviation between the material measured on site and the standard calibration material, and accurate values can be displayed without recalibration.

14. Function settings can be protected by passwords to improve setting security.

15. Betten tension meter provides two display modes, taking into account the advantages of accurate electronic tension meter reading and mechanical tension meter trend display.
