10 Tension Ranges
0-50 g up to 0-50.0 Kg

Accurately measure the running line tensions of yarns, fibers, wires, and similar filaments. Compact size for easy installation.

Built-in signal conditioning with ZERO and SPAN pots provide a high-level, analog output to minimize the chance for signal interference.

NEW RS232 Serial Output (optional)

Features

  • Precision strain gauge sensing for highest accuracy and repeatability
  • 0-1 V DC output, proportional to tension (0-10 V DC optional)
  • Roller shells are available in chrome-plated steel, hard-coated aluminum, plastic and ceramic
  • Frequency response of 100 Hz
  • Optional 10ft. connecting cable, TE-CABLE-CN is recommended. Longer lengths are available.
  • RS232 Serial output (optional) allows you to connect your sensor to our SensorView software
