Tension Sensor FSL-422
4 Tension ranges available
from 0 - 100 cN up to 0 - 1000 cN
Stationary electronic tension sensors for measuring sensitive materials as optical fibres, carbon fibres, technical fibres etc.
Large, smooth running guide rollers for minimized material deflection with 32 mm groove Ø
Tension sensor with RS-422 output for multi station system and connection to a with PC
Special features of the RS-422 interface:
- Up to 32 sensors with different tension ranges and designs may be connected in one line (data transfer max. 200 readings/sec.)
- Connection to RS-232 using a converter (RS-422 – RS-232).
- The RS-422 signal can be used for a single sensor over a distance of 1000 m.
- Each sensor can individually be addressed and set up
- Can be connected to PLC controls with digital input
- Simple connection to BUS-Systems using gateways
