Tension Meter DXH
Tension Meter DXHThreading: using the trigger the outer rollers will be moved forward. The running material is contacting the measuring pin. Release the trigger slowly and the instrument is in measuring mode
3 Tension ranges available
from 400 - 5000 cN up to 5 - 20 daN
Special mechanical tension meter for applications where access space is limited or where filaments lie close together
This hand-held instrument is used for control measurements of pretensioned non running ropes and/or polyamide guitar strings.
Tension meter with hooks instead of guide rollers.
We recommend mounting a finger support for higher tension ranges
Tension meter DXH does not include a material thickness compensator
|Model||Measuring Range||Measuring Head Width||SCHMIDT Calibration Material*|
|DXH-5000||400 – 5000 cN||116 mm||PA: 0.8 mm Ø|
|DXH-10K||2.5 – 10 daN||116 mm||PA: 1.0 mm Ø|
|DXH-20K-L||5 – 20 daN||116 mm||PA: 1.5 mm Ø|
Other units of measure available, such as g or kg.
* Suitable for 95 % of applications – PA = Polyamide Monofilament
Calibration to customized material:
If process material differs significantly from the SCHMIDT calibration material in diameter, rigidity or shape, special calibration using customer supplied samples is recommended. For this purpose a material sample of about 5 m should be supplied.
|Calibration:||According to SCHMIDT factory procedure|
|Accuracy:||±1 % full scale or ±1 graduation on scale|
|Scale diameter:||41 mm|
|Temperature range:||10 – 45 ºC|
|Air humidity:||85 % RH, max.|
|Housing material:||Die-cast aluminium|
|Weight, net (gross):||DXH-5000 and DXH-10K approx. 470 g (approx. 1000 g)|
DXH-20K-L approx. 580 g (approx. 2000 g)
SCHMIDT scales are manufactured according to the most stringent quality requirements. Printed scales are not used. Instead, each scale is individually marked for the instrument involved. This ensures highest quality. Our special procedure makes it possible to provide tension meter DXH
- calibrated to custom supplied material
- fine tuned to a specific tension range
- other units of measure such as g or kg
- Special Lever Code L
Standard for tension meter DXH-20K-L.
Facilitates acquisition of the running material when measuring high tensions. Reduces force necessary to extend outer rollers. Recommended for tension meter DXH-10K.
- Memory Pointer Code M
Retains the highest measured value (PEAK). Available for mechanical tension meters.
