Originally designed to measure the tension on telephone wires, the dynamometer has proven to have limitless versatility as a tension, traction and weight measuring instrument. It has been used for such diverse jobs as mounting cables for bridges, adjusting tension on guy wires, field testing chain, rope and wire -- anything requiring precision force or tension measurement. For critical overhead lifting applications, we suggest the Dillon APxtreme dynamometer.
Utility companies count on the Model AP dynamometer. Communication tower erectors employ several dynamometers during installation to properly tension guy wires. The Dillon dynamometer is also working every day for the aviation industry and is used worldwide in military installations.
Ships with dynamometer, shackles and pins, maximum pointer, zero adjust for tare, molded plastic carrying case for 5 models or rugged plywood storage crate for 10 models, plus calibration certificate.
Accuracy: +/-0.5% of full range - if precision data is what you need, theres a Dillon dynamometer for every force measurement task.
Wide range of capacities: 500 to 100,000 pounds or 200 to 50,000 kilograms
Choice of 5 (125 mm) or 10 (250 mm) dials
Anti-parallax dial and pointer offers accurate readings from varying sight lines. Dial is mar and fog resistant
Zero control (rear of case) can cancel preset loads up to 20% of capacity
Maximum indicator remains in position to indicate peak load point after load is removed from instrument
Mechanism case is constructed of high strength composite plastic or rugged cast aluminum -- resists heavy blows
Generous shackle openings mate with most hooks and hardware
Heavy duty roller bearings allow free rotation of shackle pins
Flexing beam fabricated from high specification steel. Heat treated for maximum strength
Wide operating temperature range: -50 to 140 F (-45 to 60 C)
Safety factor of 4.5:1 or better up to 30,000 lb (15,000 kg) - beats all competitors
