TS2 mounting drawingPrecision, Narrow Web/Tow Tension Sensor for measuring textile ribbons, films, foils, fiberglass and carbon fiber tows, etc
8 tension ranges from 0 - 100 g up to 0 - 20 Kg

Newly-designed tension sensor accurately measures the running tension of measuring textile ribbons, films, foils, fiberglass and carbon fiber tows and similar process material. It is fitted with 13 mm diameter flat, cylindrical rollers with 1 or 2 flanges with width of 7, 10, 15 or 20 mm. Standard rollers are hardcoated aluminum however carbon optimized "Orange Peel" Coating is optionally available. Built-in signal conditioning with ZERO and SPAN pots provide a high-level, analog output to minimize the chance for signal interference.

Can be using for process diagnostics, for continuously monitoring and recording of online tensions. The TS2B Tension Sensor can also be used as part of a closed-loop control system with 3rd-Party controller.

Mounting possibilities: Sensor can be mounted on a flat plate using the supplied thru holes in the housing body or fixed using the holes in the front plate, inserted thru a round hole in machine frame or plate.

Features

  • Strain Gauge-based sensor provides accuracy of 1% Full Scale or better. Sensor can be mounted in any orientation depending upon the material path
  • Built-in Signal Conditioner provides 0-1 V DC Analog Output with Integrated Zero & Gain Pots on rear-side of sensor allowing for convenient calibration by the end-user for highest accuracy
  • Optional output types include 0-10V DC, 4-20mA, RS-232, USB or WiFi
  • Fitted with 13 mm diameter flat, cylindrical rollers with 1 or 2 flanges with width of 7, 10, 15, 20 mm or 30mm. Standard rollers are hardcoated aluminum however carbon optimized "Orange Peel" Coating is optionally available
  • Cast Aluminum Housing is rugged and proves for easy installation using thru holes in housing body or front plate
  • Can be used together with PD765 Digital Tension Indicator or with user-supplied electronics (requires 15-24 V DC regulated power)
  • 3-Roller design insures that the center sensor rollers has the same wrap angle at all times which allows the sensor to be mounted in any position on the line
  • Outer roller spacing changes from 40 mm for ranges up to 1000g, 100 mm for ranges up to 10Kg and 200 mm for 20 Kg range
  • Custom-designs are possible along with special features such as air fitting to create positive internal pressure in the housing for protection against airborne chemicals or contaminants
