Stationary electronic tension sensors with non-rotating ceramic pins for threads and fibres

Max. line speed 6000 m/min

Low cost tension sensor for quick and easy mounting


Special Features

• Tension sensor FSW with integrated measuring amplifier and high accuracy of 1.5 % FS

• Guide rollers 60 mm groove Ø, V-grooved or U-grooved, ball-bearing mounted

• Various output signals are available:
– analog: 0 – 1 V DC (standard), 0 – 10 V DC (optional)
– digital (optional): USB, RS-232, Wi-Fi, RS-422 – see model FSW-422
