6 Tension ranges available from 0 - 50 cN up to 0 - 5000 cN

Stationary electronic tension sensor for measuring sensitive materials as optical fibres, technical fibres etc.

Large, smooth running guide rollers with 70 mm groove diameter for minimized material deflection. The outer rollers can be moved downward, in case of non-measurements

Tension sensor for quick and easy mounting

Special Features

Tension sensor TSF with integrated measuring amplifier and high accuracy of 1 % FS
Large bending radius for gentle handling of sensitive material
Smooth running, V-grooved guide rollers, ball-bearing mounted with 70 mm Ø
The outer rollers can be moved downwards to minimize contact in case of non-measurements
Various output signals are avaialble:
