MTNW has released a new option for our running line tensiometer product group: the Encoder Option. Recently a client requested increased payout resolution to monitor position and speed for a tidal energy project. Speed calculations for the control systems dictated that an encoder be adapted for use on our RL-30 running line tensiometer.

Measurement Technology NW was awarded Trader of the Year 2015 by the World Trade Club in October.  The World Trade Club award honors Washington State businesses that increase international sales an


MTNW provided on site support, our rental 175T Tension Link, LCI-90i and WinchDAC data acquisition software. MTNW partnered with Glosten to monitor tension and support the Sea Anchor pull test during phase one field testing in Seattle, WA.

MTNW and ROMOR will provide industry leading rugged displays, retrofit deck machinery, controls and instrumentation products for the fishing, oceanographic and oil & gas markets in Canada


When architectural firm ARUP Associates needed a tension monitoring solution for the Echelman art sculpture over the Greenway in downtown Boston they chose a design from Measurement Technology Northwest.

In response to customer demand MTNW is proud to announce the launch a new version of our LCI-90i specifically designed for bulk / mud tank monitoring applications. The LCI-90i will accept signal from hydraulic load cells, pressure sensors, or analog load cells (mV/V, 4-20mA) and digitally sum the signal. Individual load cells or pressure values can be displayed in addition to the summed load in psi, kips, lbs, kgs, tons, or percentage.


In response to customer demand Rugged Controls announces the launch of our newly designed RL-05-P tensiometer specifically configured for line speed and payout monitoring only. Eliminating the load sensor in the RL-05 tensiometer has allowed MTNW to both tailor the design to maximize payout monitoring accuracy and simplify the construction of the tensiometer...

Measurement Technology NW has supported oceanographic reseach with winch monitoring and data logging since 1986. Our award winning line of rugged programmable controllers were redesigned in 2009 with the launch of the LCI-90i Line Control Display to exceed the safety standards for long term data logging and alarm evaluation defined by the UNOLS Safety Standards Appendix A.
