The new CHECK-LINE Model TE-RFS Tension Sensor measures the running line tensions of wires, optic fibers and cables. It is designed to minimize the effects of different material rigidities when measuring on a variety of material sizes and also features a unique "tri-tens" system where the material can be threaded through the 3 rollers in 3 distinct paterns.
Its unique strain-gauge design delivers excellent measurement precision and stability as well as providing maximum overload protection.
5-Roller version is offered to minimize tension fluctuations in applications where the process material vibrates, oscillates or is unsteady.
The 2 additional rollers mounted on top of the process material are mounted on adjustable brackets allowing them to be positioned so that they slightly contact the material.
They provide additional control to insure that the process material travels over the three primary rollers (located under the material) in a smooth and even fashion.
