DTX Advanced Digital Tension Meter

Our latest digital hand-held DTX tension meter represents an advanced version of our DTS unit. It offers superior features, such as the possibility of storing more than the double number of customer made calibrations (9 with the DTX, while 4 calibrations can be stored with the DTS).

Its large measurement range of from 0.2 - 200 cN up to 0.6 - 60 daN as well as its high degree of adjustability through its different rollers, make it an ideal tool for applications in the textile, carbon fiber and wire industry.

Also incorporated in the DTX are the following advanced statistical functions:

- Mode S: Statistics only mode
- Mode H: Store X-Y graph to the data storage for later inspection
- Mode C: Continuous logging mode and personalized settings for measurement time and measuring series with 2 Hz
- Mode F: Fast Continuous logging mode. Same as C with 1000 Hz

Further features include a backlighted, rotatable LCD display which remains visible in any reading condition. The built-in material thickness compensator and calibration adjustment permit fine tunings of  the calibration for materials that don’t correspond to the calibration standard.

Real time readings are ensured with a large data storage for 60.000 readings, combined with the USB interface and data analysis software. Thus reports can conveniently be generated for quality reporting systems adhering to the strict ISO 9000 guidelines. 


  • Automatically in 90° steps rotatable LCD Display
  • Highest precision issued by built-in material thickness compensator and calibration fine tuning
  • User defined MIN and MAX values with optical alarm
  • User defined configuration allows to adjust it exactly as required
  • High measuring frequency of 1 kHz (1000 measuring/sec.), intern 8 kHz
  • Advanced statistical calculation functions
  • Data Storage for 60.000 readings
  • USB data output
