Tensitron ACX-1 Series Digital Aircraft Cable Tension Meter
The Model ACX-1 series of Aircraft Cable Tension Meters are designed to precisely measure static tensions in aircraft cables. Indicate values in Lbs, daN or KG in flexible cables with diameters from 1/16” up to 1/4”, CWT cable sizes from 5 to 25 and metric cables from 2.0mm to 4.0mm. Directly read tension from 5 to 1200 pounds (depending on model). Calibrations for 7/32” and other cable sizes can be added to the cable selection menu upon request.
Features Large, easy to read, backlit, color display with adjustable backlighting.
Display shows tension, description of cable selected, dynamic color bar graph indicating changing tensions (Amber = tension too low, Green = correct tension range and red= over range), the previous 5 tension readings along with their average and the battery charge level
Select tension values to display in Lbs., daN or KG
Depress the "Store” button to record and average your previous five readings along with their average
Data Logging Feature: Record tension values to the instrument’s memory.
Data Statistics: Monitor your process by viewing count, average, maximum, minimum, and standard deviation values of your logged data.
Data Averaging: Use this feature to adjust the stability of your displayed, tension readings. This feature allows the user to select the duration the instrument takes tension readings over and posting that average to the display. Options are: 1, 2, 5 and 10 seconds. This is a rolling average, meaning that only the readings taken in the last 1, 2, 5 or 10 seconds (your choice) will be averaged and displayed.
Up to 10 additional custom calibrations may be programmed into the instrument
Extremely accurate custom calibration procedure employing up to a 10-point multilinearization procedure.
All calibrations are password protected
Adjustable LCD refresh rates allowing for stable, digital readouts
