Online Tension Measuring Systems
3-Roller Measuring System: Consisting of two outer guide rollers and a middle measuring roller. The tension of the measured material slightly deflects the measuring roller. This deflection (up to 0.5 mm) is measured by a load cell. The built-in amplifier then generates an analog output signal which is proportional to the measured tension.
1-Roller Tension System: In combination with 2 outer reference guiding points the sensor builds a force triangle. The angle of contact has to be stable. The sensor uses straingauges and supplies a output signal in mV or V (with integrated amplifier).
SCHMIDT Online-sensors and display units:
For the continuous measurement of the running line tensions of threads and yarns, wires, cables, optic and carbon fibers and similar materials, SCHMIDT offers a wide variety of sensors using different guide rollers and frontplate dimensions.
