Features

  • Dual-flanged outer guide rollers with various widths, from 7 mm to 30 mm (single-flanged rollers optional)
  • For certain tension ranges and materials, it is possible to supply roller widths of 41 mm. Inquire.
  • Large, backlight LCD-display with 3 different displays: numeric, numeric with live load bar, numeric with graph (time-tension)
  • Display automatically rotates in 90° steps (or can be locked in any desired position)
  • Built-in Diameter Compensator System is used to adjust calibration curve for highest accuracy. Diameter is set with wheel and shown on display
  • Automatic "Zero-Setting" in all measuring positions using built-in gravity sensor
  • 4 Seperate Calibration Material memory locations for custom calibrations (can be performed by end-user and saved with alpha-numeric name)
  • Storage of Min, Max and Last reading as well as Hi-Peak, Low-Peak, average and standard deviation
  • High speed internal data sampling (8 kHz) for capture of accurate Min & Max Peaks
  • User-set Min and Max alarms with indication on LCD if reading is out of limits
  • User-adjustable DAMPING is used to minimize tension fluctuations
  • User-Selectable units of measurement: cN, daN, g, kg, N, lb
  • Setup parameters can be password protected so they are not accidentally changed by the user
  • Re-chargeable Lithium Polymer battery lasts 40 hours (continuous use, approx)
  • Rugged aluminium housing with rubberized handle provides a secure and comfortable grip
  • NIST-Traceable Calibration Certification in optionally available
