MAGPOWR Digital Tension Meter

A low-cost way to monitor tension output, the Digital Tension Meter (DTM) is perfect for applications where access to tension control parameters is not required. Operators can mount a control away from the web to get feedback on current web tension via a backlit display and illuminated digits. The DTM is encased in high-impact plastic to withstand demanding conditions. A sealed front panel meets industry-standard NEMA 4X/IP65 specifications for wash-down and dusty environments. This meter can be used with any tension sensor amplifier by reading the 0 to 1 mA meter output reference.
