Many Strainsert Instrumented Clevis Pin designs are incorporated
into sheave and pulley systems. The user has the
option of either designing a sheave around our standard
CPA Clevis Pin series or having a custom pin manufactured
for an existing sheave design with a tailored measurement
capacity and geometry, allowing for simple installation and
optimized measurement capability.
The Instrumented Sheave Pins are often used to measure
line tension by monitoring the reaction load on the pin.
Using the equations provided in the Clevis Pins for Sheave Applications Downloads, the line tension can be
