fSENS SKMfSENS SKM rope tensiometers (line riders) are designed for direct force measurements in the running hoist rope of a crane.  A typical application includes force measurement on lifting equipment i.e. for load indicators on cranes, especially lattice boom cranes.  The main advantage of rope force transducers is the direct measurement of the load without geometrical calculation. This allows simple retrofitting of a crane without any structural modifications.


  • Force measurement for running cables (functional in all cranes and reeving types)
  • Simple retrofit without need for structural change
  • Minimal structural height
  • Minimal cable wear due to minimal deviation angle
  • Available with:
    • Standard current loop
    • CANopen interface
    • External interface
