DTX Advanced Digital Tension Meter

The digital hand-held DTX tension meter is an advanced version of the DTS basic unit. Its different rollers combined with its wide measuring ranges make it the perfectly adjustable tool for applications in the textile, carbon fiber and wire industry. 12 measuring ranges from 0.2 - 200 cN up to 0.6 - 60 daN cover a large variety of applications and the built-in material thickness compensator and calibration adjustment allow also for the calibration of materials that deviate from the calibration standard.

The DTX series provides advanced statistical functions such as:

Mode S: Statistics only mode
Mode H: Store X-Y graph to the data storage for later inspection
Mode C: Continous logging mode. Userdefineable measuringtime and measuring series with 2 Hz
Mode F: Fast Continious logging mode. Same as C with 1000 Hz

Furthermore, data can be analyzed directly and thanks to its backlighted, rotatable LCD display easy reading is ensured under every condition. Just like the DTS basic unit,  the DTX also permits storage of customer made calibrations. On the DTX 9 calibrations can be stored, compared to 4 calibrations with the DTS.

The large data storage for 60.000 readings combined with the USB interface and the included data analysis software facilitate real-time readings as well as the creation of reports required for quality reporting systems, mandated under the strict ISO 9000 guidelines. 


  • Automatically in 90° steps rotatable LCD Display
  • Highest precision issued by built-in material thickness compensator and calibration fine tuning
  • User defined MIN and MAX values with optical alarm
  • User defined configuration allows to adjust it exactly as required
  • High measuring frequency of 1 kHz (1000 measuring/sec.), intern 8 kHz
  • Advanced statistical calculation functions
  • Data Storage for 60.000 readings
  • USB data output
