DTS Digital Tension Meter

Made in GermanyThis Electronic Tension Meter has been designed for applications in textile and wire industry. Delivered with a variety of rollers and measuring ranges, it can be used in several distinct industries such as the wire, textile or carbon fiber industry. 

Furthermore, the DTS Digital Tension Meter is hande-held and available with 12 different tension ranges from 0.2 - 200 cN up to 0.6 - 60 daN.

The built-in material thickness compensator and the calibration adjustment allow fine tuning of the calibration for materials, which differ from factory standard calibration material. 

Its backlight and rotatable LCD display make it easy to read under every condition.

New functions such as programmable MIN- and MAX alarms, calibration memory for up to 4 customer made calibrations and new material catching system also assist you in the improvement of your quality control processes.

To sum it up, this DTS Tension meter deliveres the critical process information required to meet today's strict quality reporting systems mandated under ISO 9000 guidelines.

  • Large backlight LCD Display automatically rotates in 90° steps
  • Integrated material thickness compensator and calibration fine tuning allow highest precision
  • Selectable MIN and MAX values with optical alarm
  • Selectable measuring units: cN, daN, g, kg, N, lb
  • High configurable to adjust it exactly as required
  • High measuring frequency of 1 kHz (1000 measuring/sec.), intern 8 kHz
  • Provides MIN-, MAX-, Peak, average and standard deviation
  • 4 customer specific calibration can be saved in addition to the standard calibration
  • Automatic zero adjustment in every position due to a modern special sensor
  • Password protection for important functions
