Main swivel joints fitted with high quality bearings
Lever ratio of 5.3:1 allows effortless, safe, clamping onto pre-tensioned wire ropes
The new COLT cable tension meter is designed for fast and accurate measurement of wire rope tensions up to 11,000 lbf / 5000 kgf on cables up to 1" / 25mm diameter. Constructed from aerospace grade aluminum the COLT digital tension meter is lightweight and easy to handle and operates on wires that are already under tension. Once in place it allows the operator to quickly check tension on cables or wire ropes set at any angle.
A built-in high accuracy, Bluetooth module transmits load data wirelessly to any smart device running our Android or iOS app. An adjustable device holder allows the COLT to be used as a traditional tension meter with on board display or the smartphone maybe handheld or mounted elsewhere.

Verification Tool - CVT
In order to ensure the COLTS accuracy measurements are as accurate as possible, SP also supply a calibration verification rod that is specifically designed to check the COLTS calibration accuracy.
The calibration verification checking process is quick and simple.
- Open the COLT app on your smart mobile device, connect to the COLT device via Bluetooth, and select Cal Check within the Rope menu section of the app.
- Place COLT on a flat surface and then zero the measurement on screen.
- Place the 20 inch steel rod in the centre of all 3 sheaves and apply loading arm until it is fully engaged with the magnetic catch. The force measurement reading should read as 3000lbs (within an accuracy range of <3%>).
- If the measurement is greater than 3% difference (above 3090lbs or below 2910lbs) then you will need to contact SP and arrange for the COLT to be sent back to SP for recalibration. The process is as simple as that!
