Tension Transducers

Tensitron's transducers convert a material's tension into a reliable signal that can be used for remote indication, high speed recording, computer hook-ups, or as input for automatic tension control systems. Shown below are some of Tensitron's standard line of transducers which range from 1/10th gram to 500 lbs. If you don't see a configuration that matches your application requirements, customizing strain gaged transducers is Tensitron's specialty, so please contact us directly. 

 Our Filament, Fine Wire, and Fiber Transducers can be supplied to measure tensions in ranges starting from 2 grams up to a maximum of 5,000 grams over numerous models.
