Tension Meter DXP

3 Tension ranges available
from 10 – 50 cN up to 20 – 200 cN

With non-rotating ceramic pins for high line speeds up to max. 6000 m/min

Hand-held mechanical tension meter with measuring head as small as possible for limited access space. Only for textile applications!

Material slip is avoided by small flanges on each side of the pin


Special Features

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

• Non-rotating ceramic pins permit line speeds up to max. 6000 m/min

• The ceramic pins have on each side small flanges to guide the thread and to avoid slipping off the ceramic pins

• Small measuring head width with of only 27 mm for measurements at positions with limited space

• Length of measuring head approx. 64 mm

• Roller shifting mechanism ensure easy acquisition of the running material

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

• Turned-up outer finger edges guide the running filament into the roller grooves

• 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
