The RTS (Rope Tensioning System) is a portable electronic device for quickly measuring the tension of elevator wire ropes within an accuray of 3 %.
The system includes a LCD touch-screen control unit with a capacity of up to 12 sensors attached via USB connections (indicate the quantity of sensors from 6 to 12 per control unit when you place your order).
In the Weighing Mode, the individual rope tension readings and average weight are shown graphically and numerically in either imperial or metric units for up to 12 ropes. The clearly displayed tension information allows the field technician to quickly and accurately equalize the rope tension. Since the information is displayed in real time for each rope, the impact of tensioning adjustment made to one rope is immediately visible on the other ropes.
In the Adjust Mode, the before and after tension values for up to 150 installations can be stored in the internal memory. This information can then be downloaded to a PC via the included USB cable.
Coupling hardware for each sensor is included which permits the sensors to be attached to rope diameters of 4 mm (1/6 in) to 16 mm (5/8 in). Each sensor has a maximum capacity of 1200 kg (2400 lbs).
The weight of the cab and counterweight can also be conveniently and precisely measured with the RTS.
