Model 1500V and 1500H Tension Readout Unit

MCS now offers two digital in-line Tension Readout Units to measure and display the tension applied to a wire while spooling or winding in realtime. In different modes, the 4 digit display will read out wire tension, wire speed, or wire length while wire is passing through the unit. It is designed for permanent installation, replacing handheld tension measurement devices. In typical applications it will read from 1 to 2200 Grams. We offer this device in multiple configurations for a wide range of wire size. It is available in horizontal or vertical mount. Optional software applications are available for real time data acquisition and statistical processing. Power is connected using a standard USB cable and power supply or USB computer port.
