Deadline Sensor

Designed with the oil field in mind, Massload has developed a low cost line tension sensor that fits a variety of cable sizes. This unique design does not require the user to cut any cables and create dead ends for load measurement devices. It simply clamps onto the middle of the wire rope and measures cable deflection to determine how much load is being applied. An industry standard 4-20 mA output allows you to connect this unit to a variety of devices including PLCs and PCs. Pre calibrated at factory, but requires site specific calibration for best accuracy.


Accurate strain gauge measurement
Designed for all deadline tension, electronic sensing applications
Simple clamp-on design requires no deadline anchor
Environmentally sealed load cell operates in the harshest of environments
Easy to use
Installs on wire rope from 3/4" to 2" diameter
Electronics are protected from reverse wire hook up
Industry standard 4-20mA signal



  • Used in tension applications where a dead end is not available for load measurement
  • Can attach to the middle of any cable
  • Can be moved easily to other wire rope as required
  • Classified as a safety device rather than a weigh scale
  • Quick disconnect connector to loadcell
  • 2 Year warranty
