Special Features

»Multifunctional instrument:«
– Tension Meter
– Yarn Speed Meter
– Yarn Length Meter
to determine the yarn consumption of a single feeder for one or more machine cycles (max. 10 revolutions) of a circular knitting machine

Tension meter PT-100-L with easy Slide-In material threading by cone shaped, ball-bearing mounted guide rollers and turning the instrument

Length Measurement – 2 operating modes:
-“Manual” (without external sensor):
The instrument measures as long as the operator is pressing the button
-“Auto” (with “Reed” magnet Sensor):
Sensor and magnet are supplying a start/stop signal for a user-defined number of machine revolutions (1 – 10)

Automatic »zero setting« to zero the instrument in any measuring position

Adjustable electronic damping to provide steady tension readings

When the series of measurement ends, the average value can be displayed
