DTLB Standard Model
DTLX Data-Logging Model

3 Ranges Up To 10 Kg
For material diameters up to 8mm (5/16")
Requires Calibration with Customer Sample

DTLB and DTLX models feature large diameter rollers with wide roller spacing to minimize bending when measuring tensions on rigid/stiff materials such as certain canles, buffer tubes, central strength members, plastic tubes, etc.

DTLX 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


    • Large, V- or U-grooved guide rollers with 29.5 mm groove diameter, ball-bearing mounted
    • Large bending radius assures gentle handling of the material being measured
    • Special guides on the bracket assembly permit easy material acquisition
    • A precision strain-gauge sensing system accurately measures the force on the middle sensing roller.
    • High-Speed Measurement Captures Max, Min & Peak Tension Values
    • Requires Calibration on Customer Sample
