The Dillon Quick Balance tension meter quickly measures tension on elevator traction cables or other cable sets, recording individual readings, averages and total readings. Quick Balance installs, measures and removes in seconds, giving accurate digital readings up to 10,000 lbs. No look-up or correction tables required, and no need to write down readings for comparisons.

Quick Balance can be employed in many industries for the balancing of multiple line installations. Typical applications include elevators, tower and stack guy wire rope and crane rigging sets.


The Fastest Cable Tension Meter

Quick Balance can be placed on a cable, measure its tension and removed in seconds! There are no complex lookup tables and no conversion charts. The operator can quickly select from different wire rope sizes and types stored in the Quick Balance memory. Once a set of measurements has been taken the operator can adjust various tensions in the check tensioning mode which displays both current and target settings of individual cables.

Broad Application

Quick Balance can be employed in many industries for the balancing of multiple line installations. Typical applications include elevators, tower and stack guy wire rope and crane rigging sets.

What size sheaves should be purchased?

It makes sense to take advantage of the range for the sheaves. Most customers can make do with one set of sheaves for the entire assortment of wires they tension. If a customer checks tension in both 3/4" and 3/16" rope, the they should order two sheave sets, sheave code "L" & "S". The operator must use the appropriate sheave set for the wire size and calibration stored. Changing sheave sets takes about two minutes with included wrench.
