DX2 Tension meter

Made in GermanyA precise jeweled movement, choice of ball bearing mounted rollers and rugged cast aluminum housing makes the DX2 ideal for the toughest production floor application.

Built-in mounting holes permit fixed installation for continuous in-line use.

Built-in material thickness compensator maximizes accuracy when using filaments of different diameters. (Standard on model DX2-SP and higher ranges).

  • Thumb-operated, roller shifting mechanism and exclusive snare-guide automatically guides the moving filament into the V-grooves eliminating breaks and snags
  • Front filament loading permits the operator to observe running material, rollers and dial face at all times
  • DX2's are individually calibrated for highest accuracy
  • 41mm Ø scale
  • DX2's hard-coated aluminum, V-grooved rollers are rated for speeds up to 2000 m/min or, optionally, up to 5000 m/min
  • Finger Support: We recommend mounting a finger support for higher tension ranges (included)
  • Certificate of Compliance with the order 2.1 according DIN EN 10204 is included
  • Optionally available: Inspection Certificate 3.1 according DIN EN 10204 with calibration report

* Depending on model, either width of filament guide or outer distance between outside guide rollers
** Suitable for 95% of applications - PA = Polyamide Monofilament
***MTC = Material Thickness Compensator

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 L: Special LeverCode 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.

Facilitates acquisition of the running material when measuring high tensions.
Reduces force necessary to extend outer rollers: Recommended for tension ranges of 10 daN and higher.

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