The new CHECK-LINE DTMX Digital Tension Meters accurately measure the running line tensions of yarns, fibers, wires, cables, optic fibers and similar process materials.
Its unique design combines the latest microprocessor technology with the reliability, simplicity and ruggedness found in CHECK-LINE mechanical tension meters.
The DTMX provides the critical process information required to meet today's strict quality reporting systems mandated under ISO 9000 guidelines.
Built-in Data logger
The DTMX built-in data logger stores up to 100 tension values and automatically calculates maximum, minimum, peak, average and standard deviation values. The data values and summary statistics can be recalled to the display for viewing or downloaded to a printer or Personal Computer.
The data logger can be set to store in two different modes. In the On-Demand Mode, a tension value is stored, each time the STORE key is pressed. In the Continuous Mode, the STORE key is pressed to start continuous data logging. Each displayed value will be stored until the memory is filled or until the STORE key is pressed again to stop the data logging. The stored data is retained in memory for the life of the batteries.
