BX2 - Single Flanged Rollers
RX2 - Dual Flange Rollers
Cylindrical rollers are offered in 7, 10, 15, 20, 30, 36, 41 and 50 mm lengths to measure tapes, bands, films and similar materials. Roller length should not exceed 2x the width of the material being measured.
NOTE: Models using 50 mm roller lengths are supplied with a special heavy-duty bracket and use the DXX model designation.
Finger Support: We recommend mounting a finger support for higher tension ranges
Note:This model does not include a material thickness compensator

|Air Damping (A)
An adjustable, precision air dashpot provides steady tension reading as tension fluctuate.
A heavy duty, lever-operated mechanism moves the outer rollers for easy acquisition of the running filament. Recommended for models of 10 Kg or higher.
|Memory Pointer (M)
Designed to retain the peak value as tensions fluctuate. Manually reset by using the knob located in the center of the dial.
Note: Model RX2/BX2-50 is not available with memory pointer
The RX2/BX2 Tension Meter is supplied as a complete kit including meter and instruction manual in a foam-fitted hard-plastic carrying case.
