The new TSC Series is a purpose-built online tension sensor for continuous measurement of running line tensions of yarns, fibers, thin wires and similar process materials. The precision-machined housing is constructed allowing for installation of several sensors in close-proximity to one another when end-to-end spacing of the process material is limited. Multiple sensors can be mounted adjacent to another for fixed to a single rail for quick and easy mounting.. 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 TSC Series 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 on the underside of the housing body or fixed on the optional rail allowing for quick, easy installation and allows for multiple sensors mounted adjacent to one another with minimal spacing.

Features

  • Slim Sensor Housing allows for multiple sensors mounted adjacent to one another with minimal spacing
  • Strain Gauge-based sensor provides accuracy of 2% 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 (0-10V or mv/V, optional) with Integrated Zero & Gain Pots on rear-side of sensor allowing for convenient calibration by the end-user for highest accuracy
  • Ball-Bearing mounted, Hardcoat Anodized Aluminum V-grooved guide rollers standard. Hardened Steel, Ceramic, flat cylindrical and U-Grooved roller options available
  • 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
  • Sensor can be mounted on a flat plate using the supplied thru holes on the underside of the housing body or fixed on the optional rail allowing for quick, easy installation
  • Includes 2 meter (6 ft) length integrated cable with open ends for connection to Tension Indicator or user-supplied electronics
