DTEB - DTEX Tension meter with small measuring head

The DTEB - DTEX Tension meter with small measuring head is no longer available and has been replaced by DTSE / DTXE.
Click here to see the DTSE / DTXE.

Made in GermanyTension meter with small measuring head, where access space is limited or where filaments run close together

The tension meter has turned-up finger edges for easy threading.

Note: The design is otherwise according to model DTMB respectively model DTMX, but no material thickness compensator.

  • Turned-up outer finger edges guide the running filament into the roller grooves
  • Length of measuring head approx. 59 mm
  • Small, ball-bearing mounted, V-grooved guide rollers
  • Everything in operator's view:
    • the guide rollers
    • the measured material
    • the readings
  • Filament guide and roller shifting mechanism ensure easy acquisition of the running material
  • Ball-bearing mounted, V-grooved guide rollers
  • Rugged aluminum housing
  • Battery operated (AC adapter for continuous operation available)
  • Specific Test Report with calibration report optionally available

Measuring Head Width 38 mm (Width of bracket assembly)
Measuring Head Length 59 mm

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.
