Tension Meter KXE

2 measuring ranges from 0.50 - 20.00 daN up to 0.5 - 50.0 daN

Electronic tension meter for measuring warp threads on stagnant or running weaving machines 
Hand-held tension meter for determining the tension of groups of yarns

The sensor can easily be engaged or disengaged

Special Features

  • Portable measuring head to measure yarn groups of weaving and warping machines 
  • The sensor can easily be engaged or disengaged also while the machine is running
  • Constant measuring width at the yarn group of 50 mm by catch thread system
  • Storage of last, average, Max, MIN, PEAK-MAX, PEAK-MIN tension values during an operator set measuring period
  • Adjustable electronic damping for better reading when tension is constantly changing
  • Battery operation (LiPo accumulator with long runtime and short charging time)
  • LCD display with illuminated backgroud for better reading
  • Display of the tension meter can be reversed for right and left hand use to reach all measuring positions easily
tension meter model KXE with reversed display
  • USB interface for connection to a PC
  • Memory of max. 4000 displayed tension values split up to 255 series of measurements and statistics (Last, AVG, MIN and MAX of displayed values, MIN-PEAK and MAX-PEAK are values measured within a measuring frequency of 1 kHz)

  • 4 different memory modes can be selected by the operator:
    - Mode S: only statistical values per series are displayed
    - Mode L: statistics plus 10 displayed values of each series of measurement
    - Mode C: statistics plus 4000 displayed values arbitrary splited up to 255 series
    - Mode F: as C plus higher sampling rate of 100 Hz = values/s
laptop with software SW-TI3 Model KXE can be connected to a PC with the USB cable
With the programm SW-TI3 Tension Inspect 3 readings can be
displayed, statistically analyzed and saved. For more information
see "accessories"
