Transducers - Fiber and Wire

Remote Monitoring

Achieve continuous, measurable quality control with Tensitron transducers for fiber and wire. Permanently mount the sensors and convert the tension to a reliable signal that can be output for remote display, high-speed recording, or automatic tension control.

Transducers can be customized for your specific material or environment. For example, we can change the roller type and dimensions, or incorporate your own rollers.
