 LX

For use on larger-diameter, flexible materials with expected tension ranges to either 250 lbs or 500 lbs. For solid core wires (unbraided) over 1mm in diameter, use either a C-Series of CX-Series cable meter.
  • Large, easy to read, graphic display with adjustable backlighting and contrast.
  • Select tension values to indicate in Lbs, Kg or daN.
  • Display shows Tension, Battery Charge level and Material selected.
  • Push a button to activate the Memory Function to store and display up to five separate tension readings plus the average value (AVG) of these stored readings.
  • Accuracy is +/- 2% full-scale for all menu-selectable calibrations. Accuracy for custom calibrations is material specific. • Up to 10 calibrations can be programmed into instrument. (All calibrations are password protected to provide due diligence against unauthorized changes).
  • Adjustable LCD refresh rates allow for stable digital readings.
  • All models typically available from stock.
  • All models factory calibrated and ready for use.
  • All calibration values traceable to National Standards.
  • Calibration certificate included.
