4 Tension Ranges
0-50 g up to 0-500 g
Non-rotation cermaic pins make the Model TP Tension Sensor ideal for yarns and fibers running at speeds up to 6,000 m/min.


  • Precision strain gauge sensing for highest accuracy and repeatability
  • Frenquency response of 100 Hz
  • 0-1 V DC output, proportional to tension (0-10 V DC optional)
  • Surface mount electronics provide long-term reliability
  • 4mm diameter ocide ceramic pins are rated for filament speeds up to 6,000 m/min.
