Saddleback Monitor SBM
The DLM Saddleback is a line tension monitor suited for more delicate cable, including telecommunication cables or large cable where a Running Line Monitor is unsuitable.
The line tension is measured by the cable passing over the chute and deflecting the Load Cell mounted beneath.
As with the Running Line Monitors, the speed or distance of the cable pay out can be measured by the roller arm incorporated within the Saddleback.
