ETPB-ETPX Limited Access Digital Tension Meter

Made in GermanyElectronic tension meter for hard to reach and limited access space applications with ceramic pins up to max. 6000 m/min 

2 Models
ETPB (Basic unit) & ETPX (with memory and outputs)

3 Ranges
0.5 - 100, 2 - 200, 2 - 500 (g or cN)

Three long, closely-spaced slender shafts with precision guide rollers or pins at their ends combine with the latest in microprocessor technology to make this instrument top choice for all limited-access, tension measuring applications.

Tension meter with measuring head as small as possible for textil application only

Reversible display for right or left-hand operation

Special features for the ETPX models: 

  • Memory of max. 4000 displayed tension values splited up to 255 series of measurements and statistics (Last, AVG, MIN and MAX of displayed values, MIN-PEAK and MAX-PEAK are values measured within a measuring frequency of 1 kHz)
  • USB interface for connection to a PC (With the programm SW-TI3 »Tension Inspect 3« readings can be 
    displayed, statistically analyzed and saved.)
  • 4 different memory modes can be selected by the operator:
    - Mode S: only statistical values per series are displayed
    - Mode L: statistics plus 10 displayed values of each series of measurements
    - Mode C: statistics plus 4000 displayed values arbitrary splited up to 255 series
    - Mode F: as C plus higher sampling rate of 100 Hz = 100 values/s

  • User Selectable Units Grams or Centinewtons
  • New filament guide for easy acquisition of material
  • Adjustable damping for easier readings when tension fluctuates
  • Backlit LCD Display
  • 0-2 VDC analog output for connection to a chart recorder or datalogger
  • USB output for batch download or real-time data transfer to TensionInspect Software
  • TensionInspect Software plus USB cable provided FREE
