Abstract (en)

[origin: EP2687834A1] A measuring instrument for measuring tension in a rope (4), comprising an open ring-shaped elastically deformable structure (2), which is designed to be at least partially subjected to the force to be measured, and a transducer (3) associated with said structural element to generate an electric signal proportional to the force to be measured, to which the structural element is subjected. Advantageously, the elastically deformable structure (2) has at least one first portion (2a) and at least one second portion (2b) distinct from each other, said transducer (3) being associated therewith.
