DTS Series Hand-held Digital Tension Meter


Made in GermanyThis high quality hand-held Digital Tension Meter is the perfect tool for improving your quality control processes.

The DTS comes with a newly incorporated material catching system and offers 12 different tension measuring ranges from 0.2 - 200 cN up to 0.6 - 60 daN.

With its different rollers and various measuring ranges, this made in Germany Digital Tension Meter can be deployed in a variety of applications in the wire, textile and carbon fiber industry. 

Furthermore, it is an elaborated measuring tool with a built-in material thickness compensator and calibration adjustment to enable fine tuning of the calibration for materials deviating from factory standard calibration material. 

The DTS also features a rotatable LCD display for perfect readability in any condition, a backlight, a programmable MIN- and MAX alarm function and a calibration memory for up to 4 customer made calibrations.

To round it up, this  DTS Tension meter provides the critical process information required to be able to adhere the strict ISO 9000 reporting guidelines.


Features
  • Large backlight LCD Display automatically rotates in 90° steps
  • Integrated material thickness compensator and calibration fine tuning allow highest precision
  • Selectable MIN and MAX values with optical alarm
  • Selectable measuring units: cN, daN, g, kg, N, lb
  • High configurable to adjust it exactly as required
  • High measuring frequency of 1 kHz (1000 measuring/sec.), intern 8 kHz
  • Provides MIN-, MAX-, Peak, average and standard deviation
  • 4 customer specific calibration can be saved in addition to the standard calibration
  • Automatic zero adjustment in every position due to a modern special sensor
  • Password protection for important functions
