Tension Calibration Systems

Tension calibration links (or force calibration links) give independent measurements of force for checking the force calibration of Metriguard Tension Proof Testers. Each tension calibration link assembly includes two wood-faced steel paddles for insertion into the clamps, a tension load cell with steel pins for attachment to the paddles, and a readout unit. Calibration of the tension load cell and readout unit is traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

A mounting pedestal holds the chosen force measurement system and stands free of the tester machinery.
