MC Tension Sensor


web_mc_2nd.jpgThe MC tension sensor is a force converter designed especially for tension controllers or tension meters. It is a high-precision instrument suited to high-speed lines.

This tension sensor has a high spring stiffness and therefore a high resonance frequency, which makes it ideal for high-speed lines. Since there is very little displacement under loads, it is particularly useful for sensing deflection in thin webs (films and aluminum foil, etc.). The sensor's simple, monoblock construction makes it more accurate, and gives it an excellent hysteresis and linearity. A stopper protects it against overloading.

1. Figures for rated tension and allowable roll weight are for double-sided detection. For single detection the above figures should be halved.
2. A 5m cable with connectors for connection to an amplifier is supplied.
