Equator™ Rope Tensioning System

Prevent premature and excessive rope and sheave groove wear with The Equator™ Rope Tensioning System. Unequal tension creates vibration and rope slip, leading to premature and excessive wear of ropes and sheave grooves. The Equator™ helps prevent these unsafe conditions by ensuring that rope tensions are equal on all hoist ropes, supporting the elevator car and counterweight.

The Equator™ rope tensioning system uses two identical injection molded gauges to compare and ensure the tension in traction lift hoist ropes can be equalized.

The Equator™ system is fast to implement, and the rope tensions measurements are accurate because the gauges are initially calibrated on the same rope.

The robust and lightweight Equator™ gauges are supplied in a briefcase, complete with springs, hook bolts, adjusting spanner and rope locators. No power or data cables are required for operation. The system is designed for use on a range of lift ropes from 1/4-inch to 3/4-inch.
