TE General Purpose Tension Sensor

The TE General Purpose Tension Sensor is no longer available and has been replaced by TS1.
Click here to see the TS1.

Made in GermanyThe TE is a multi purpose tension sensor for continuous tension monitoring of filaments, yarns, fibers, wires and similar materials with a diameter up to 2 mm. 

The compact housing allows quick and easy mounting. 


  • Precision strain gauge sensing for highest accuracy and repeatability
  • 0-1 V DC output, proportional to tension (0-10 V DC optional)
  • Roller shells are available in chrome-plated steel, hard-coated aluminum, plastic and ceramic
  • Frequency response of 100 Hz
  • Optional 10ft. connecting cable, TE-CABLE-CN is recommended. Longer lengths are available
