60T Standard Running Line Monitor


The DLM 60t Standard Running Line Monitor measures the tension on a rope passing through its three wheels.

Typically the Running Line Monitor is used for winch and cable laying operations to measure and record line tension the robust design has become an industry standard.

The monitor can be supplied as a separate item for integration with customers existing PLC’s or with a DLM digital display/HMI touch screen display.
