(Surface Mounted)

The TS481 Strain Gauge Amplifier Card is designed for use with the RFS/NWS & WTS Tension Sensors. It is offered in two versions: Surface Mounted (M) and 19" Rack Mounted (19).


  • Galvanic Isolation minimizes the chance for signal interference, including ground faults
  • Optional "Explosion Proof" configuration
  • Provides accuracy of ±0.1%
  • 0 - 10VDC analog output is standard. A current output option can be added providing 0-20/4-20mA (option A)
  • User-enabled "damping function" eliminates tension fluctuations
