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.
Hylec Controls | Test Equipment Suppliers and Intergrators
Hylec Control was first established in 1979 and initially started operation as a developer and manufacturer of analogue control systems. These were specially customised hydraulic applications, using servo valve technology. Hylec inarguably aclaims to be one of a few companies that have the knowledge and experience to service and repair most servo brands past and present.
Today, Hylec while still maintaining their core business in supply and service of quality servo valves also provides the latest equipment for the Test, Measurement, Construction, Building, Automotive & Aviation industries.
We welcome you to a snapshot of some of the latest technology available today.
