               Application design information   (How Sensors Work)
               Tension Sensor Selection Guide
TMI manufactures precision tension sensors with strain gage transducer load cells.  All sensors use full bridge 350 or 1000 ohm elements, specifically designed for dynamic and static tension measurement. These sensors are used for a broad range of industrial, laboratory and test applications.  The sensor body types shown here offer a wide variation of installation options.
 Most tension sensors can be provided with V-groove/U-groove and web type rollers.  
Our competitive pricing structure allows the purchase of semi-custom and custom electronic systems at or near off-the-shelf prices with 2 - 4 week deliveries. Call, fax or E-Mail our offices with the details of your application for instrument recommendations and pricing.

Displacement Gages and Extensometers

  Displacement Gages

 

Offering standard line: Displacement Gages - High Frequency Displacement Gages - Surface Flaw Displacement Gages - Clip Gages.




 
 
  Separable Extensometer

  extense-clr.jpg (30882 bytes)

Offering standard Line: Separable Extensometers, Extended Range Separable Extensometers, High Range Separable Extensometers, Averaging Extensometers, and High Range Averaging Extensometers.

  Surface Flaw Displacement

surf-flaw.jpg (23432 bytes) 

This displacement gage attaches to the inside surfaces of the starter notch.  Location is maintained by contact friction.   Attachment devices placed near the flaw are not required.  The  gage self detaches upon specimen failure and the fully active strain gage bridge provides outstanding sensitivity and linearity. 

 Strap Tension Meter

 TMS SERIES

These Strap Tension Meters are used for measuring tension in both metal and plastic strapping during packaging of pallets, boxes and cases.   The center sensing foot has a chiseled end that allows it to slip under the strapping with little force.  Meters are factory calibrated, lightweight and 11" in length.  The large dial faces make them easy to read and easy to use.  This allows your shipping department to take the extra step toward the reduction of shipping damage.
