Built-in mounting holes permit fixed installation for continuous in-line use.
Built-in material thickness compensator maximizes accuracy when using filaments of different diameters. (Standard on model DX2-SP and higher ranges)
- Thumb-operated, roller shifting mechanism and exclusive snare-guide automatically guides the moving filament into the V-grooves eliminating breaks and snags.
- Front filament loading permits the operator to observe running material, rollers and dial face at all times.
- V-Grooved Hardcoat Anodized Aluminum rollers for material speeds up to 2000 meters/min
- Optional "K" Bearings for 3000 meters/min or Ultra-High Speed Rollers for 5000 meters/min
- DX2's are individually calibrated for highest accuracy.
- NIST-Traceable calibration available
- DX2's hard-coated aluminum, V-grooved rollers are rated for speeds up to 2000 m/min or, optionally, up to 5000 m/min.
- Water Resistant model available with nickel plated axles, sealed bearings, splash guard, sealed housing, drainage holes and more
Finger Support: We recommend mounting a finger support for higher tension ranges (included)

If process material differs significantly from the standard calibration material in diameter, rigidity or shape, special calibration using customer supplied samples is recommended. For this purpose a material sample of about 15 ft. should be supplied.
|Air Damping (A)
An adjustable, precision air dashpot provides steady tension reading as tension fluctuate. Available on DX2-12 (20 - 120g) and high ranges
A heavy duty, lever-operated mechanism moves the outer rollers for easy acquisition of the running filament. Recommended for models of 10 Kg or higher.
|Memory Pointer (M)
Designed to retain the peak value as tensions fluctuate. Manually reset by using the knob located in the center of the dial.
