Click images to enlarge.
The DTFB Limited Access Digital Tension meter accurately measure the running line tensions of yarns, fibers, wires, cables and similar process materials. Long, flat fingers and miniature 7.4 mm diameter V-grooved rollers permit measurement in areas with limited space or tightly grouped filaments.

DTFX Additional Features

  • Built-in datalogging with RS232 and 0-1 VDC Analog output
  • Memory capacity of 100 values plus min, max, peak, avg and standard deviation
  • Optional TensionView software available for batch download or continuous real-time trending


    • Roller shifting mechanism ensures easy acquisition of the running material
    • Small measuring head, allows access where space is limited or where filaments run close together
    • Turned-up outer finger edges guide the running filament into the roller grooves
    • Calibration to customer supplied material is available
    • Minature 7.4 mm diameter V-Grooved rollers for material speeds up to 900 meters/min
