Tension Meter DXF

4 Tension ranges available
from 20 – 120 cN up to 50 – 1000 cN

Mechanical tension meter with large guide rollers (32 mm groove diameter) and large center distance to minimize bending of materials

Hand-held instrument for sensitive material as optical fibres, carbon fibres, technical fibres etc up to 1.5 mm Ø

Tension meter with special guides on the bracket assembly for easy thread


Special Features

• The analog display of tension meter DXF shows changing and fluctuating tensions fast and enables an optimal process adjustment

• Large bending radius assures gentle handling of the material being measured

• Roller shifting mechanism ensure easy acquisition of the running material

• Built-in mounting holes permit fixed installation for continuous tension measurement

• Special finger support located on the rear side reduces the effort to move the outer roller assembly

Standard Features

• Everything in operator’s view:
– the guide rollers
– the measured material
– the readings

• Large, V-grooved guide rollers with 32 mm groove diameter, ball-bearing mounted

• Each instrument is individually calibrated for highest accuracy
