DXL Tension meter with large rollers for minimized material deflection

Made in GermanyFor fiber optic cables and buffer tubes up to 8mm max

Special purpose model feature large rollers to minimize bending of materials like optics, carbon and technical fibers.

Fragile filaments such as fiber optics and other technical fibers may require large roller diameters and a wide roller spacing.

Note: This model does not include a material thickness compensator

  • Large, V- or U-grooved guide rollers with 30 mm groove diameter, ball-bearing mounted
  • Custom-built configurations are available
  • Ball-bearing mounted V- or U-grooved guide rollers
  • 41 mm Ø scale
  • Certificate of Compliance with the order 2.1 according DIN EN 10204 is included
  • Large bending radius assures gentle handling of the material being measured
  • Everything in operator's view:
    - the guide rollers
    - the measured material
    - the readings
  • Each instrument is individually calibrated for highest accuracy
  • Rugged aluminium housing
  • Optionally available: Inspection Certificate 3.1 according DIN EN 10204 with calibration report

Other tension ranges available on request. Other units of measure available, such as g and kg.
* Outer distance between outside guide rollers
** Suitable for 95% of applications - PA = Polyamide Monofilament

Special calibration using customer supplied samples is recommended, if process material differs significantly from the SCHMIDT calibration material in diameter, rigidity or shape. For this purpose a material sample of about 5 m should be supplied.

Code A: Air DampingCode M: Memory Pointer

This adjustable mechanical air dashpot is recommended for applications in which great fluctuations of the measured tension occur, as in spooling and winding machines.
This assures steady tension readings on the scale.

Retains the highest measured value (PEAK).
Available for mechanical tension meters.
