Tension Meter  TM340


Easy tension settings that can be used immediately

Operation status can be known in real timedue to additional communication function

Our new TM340 tension meter is compatible with Nireco's entire line-up of tension sensors (MB, MG, MC, CD, MJ, CJ, TSA, Intrinsically safe TSA ) and displays their tension readings.
The display range is from 0 to 10 kN (1,000 x 10 N). The tension signal output (0 to 10 V (0 to 5 V), or 4 to 20 mA) can be output to a sequencer, indicator, recorder or other device. By using the new communications function (RS485), the tension meter can be linked to a PC or other receiver, so that the operating state of the equipment can be monitored remotely.

The Tension Meter TM340 quantitatively measures the tension of a running web in manufacturing and processing lines of webs such as film, textile and rubber.
Nireco tension sensors that have good accuracy and responsiveness are used. These sensors electronically measure the tiny changes that vary in proportion to the web tension. The TM340 tension meter then adds and amplifies the sensor signals and indicates the tension.

  • Enhanced operability through digital processing
    When initializing, various parameters can be set via a dialogue system.
  • Auto-zero control function
    Zeroing the sensor can be done at the touch of a button.
  • Correction functions
    Auto-zero, auto-span and other adjustment functions can easily be made.
  • Communication function
    The TM340's communication function (RS-485) enables connection to a PC to allow remote monitoring.
