MK2 Stationary Tension Meter

Made in GermanyThe MK2 Tension Meter accurately measures running line tensions on a wide variety of yarns, fibers, wires, etc. It's designed for fixed mounting for continuing tension measurement.

Threaded mounting holes are provided on the back side and edge of the housing.

  • Adjustable maximum tension detector contact can provide a low voltage signal when tensions exceed the user-set maximum limit.
  • Built-in magnetic damping averages out tension fluctuations.
  • Chromed steel, V-grooved guide rollers for speeds up to 1000 m/min or, optionally, 5000 m/min.
