The DIGIFORCE is an instrument that enables the measurement of tension in wire, strand, cable and rod without contact.
It operates on the principle that when a tensioned member anchored between two points is struck, it vibrates at a frequency related to its tensile stress.
The DIGIFORCE detects the frequency of vibration when held in close proximity to the member and computes it into a force value on the digital display. The DIGIFORCE is a portable, battery-powered unit housed in a robust hand-held enclosure with an alphanumeric display and push-button membrane keypad.
Very quick and easy to use, The DIGIFORCE requires only two pieces of information to be keyed in; the length of the member between its fixed points and its weight in grams per metre.
The member is then struck, causing it to resonate whilst the DIGIFORCE is held in close proximity to sample the frequency, within a few seconds the tension force is displayed on the screen.
Each DIGIFORCE is supplied in a robust carry case with a mallet, laminated look-up tables for the weight of wires, strands, cables and rods and a ferrous responder for use with non-magnetic members.
