Cable Force Testing
Depending on the application, cable forces can be measured either using in-line load cells or using vibratory methods. For projects where load cells can be installed, BDI can configure a data recording system to automatically store cable forces. This can be a very powerful method for balancing forces between many cables.
In other applications, it may not be feasible to install load cells. Therefore, an alternative method can be used by measuring the cable’s fundamental frequency of vibration with our Cable Force Measurement System.
Using the vibratory method, load cells, or other approaches, BDI can mobilize quickly to help your crews adjust cable or tension rod forces until they are within design specifications.
- Measure multiple forces simultaneously
- Hand-held units used for single cable measurements
- Data can be recorded for quality assurance
