The Straightpoint COLT is a lightweight wire rope tension meter or shunt tension meter for fast and accurate measurement of tensions up to 11,000 lb or 5000 kg and up to 1” or 25mm diameter. Manufactured using an integral, high accuracy, Bluetooth module the COLT transmits load data wirelessly to any smart device running our Android or iOS app. 
Constructed from aerospace grade aluminium the COLT digital tensiometer 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. 
Multiple drop tested from 3 metres or 10 feet. A built-in magnetic smart device holder allows the COLT to be used as a traditional tension meter with on board display or the smartphone can be handheld or mounted elsewhere. 
Supplied in a purpose made carry case the COLT is portable and utilizes standard alkaline batteries making this perfect for on-site cable tension measurement across the world. An optional calibration verification tool (CVT) allows the operator to self-check & verify calibration accuracy in the field if required.
