Universal Tension Sensor for Tapes, Bands and Tows (Glass and Carbon Fibers)

4 Tension Ranges from 0-100 g up to 0-1000 g
2 Roller Widths; 7 or 10 mm Diameters
Can be supplied with V-Grooved or U-Grooved Rollers, TSC-Series

The new TSCB Series is a purpose-built online tension sensor for continuous measurement of running line tensions of narrow tapes, bands, webs, tows of fiberglass or carbon fibers and similar process materials. The precision-machined housing is constructed allowing for the installation of several sensors in close proximity to one another when the 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.

tscb tension sensor on din railCan be used for process diagnostics, for continuously monitoring and recording of online tensions. The TSCB 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

  • 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
  • Supplied with easy-running ball-bearing mounted, flat cylindrical rollers with flanges.
  • 7 mm wide roller is fabricated from nickel-plated steel, 10 mm roller is hardcoat anodized aluminum
  • Rollers can be supplied with a special carbon-optimized coating ("orange peel"), Option Code CF
  • Can be used together with SC-PM, 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
  • Slim Sensor Housing allows for multiple sensors mounted adjacent to one another with minimal spacing
  • Includes 2 meter (6 ft) length integrated cable with open ends for connection to Tension Indicator or user-supplied electronics
