MPS SERIES TENSION SENSORS

    MPS 3 ROLLER MPS 1 ROLLER TOP
    MPS 3 ROLLER SIDE   MPS 1 ROLLER

The MPS series sensors are designed to be cantilever mounted to the machine frame. The narrow body allows the rollers to mounted close to the machine. They are designed for Single Roller and 3-Roller Face Plate applications. All roller types, V-groove, U-groove and cylindrical web, can be used with this sensor body. There are 2 standard body types for this sensor. The MPS, which has an L-shaped mounting base that has 3 slotted mounting holes to bolt to the machine frame. The MPSX version has a flat base with 2, 1/4-20 tapped holes in the back side of the base. Click on the drawing links below for a detailed drawing of each type.  Sensors can be calibrated to read in grams, pounds, ounces, kg, cn, newton, etc.   Modifications to meet your specific requirements are easily made.

Digital Panel Meters, Displays, Amplifiers and Signal Conditioners
All TMI Strain Gaged Tension Transducers and Load Cells are full bridge 350 ohm or 1000 ohm sensors. They require an electronic signal conditioning module. This is typically a Digital Panel Meter with Display or Strain Gage Amplifier module. These units must provide the sensor's excitation voltage and be able to process the mV/V signal from the sensor.

Two 1/4-20 tapped holes in the back side for mounting.


     

 
The MPS can be used with a single roller or with face plates for 3 rollers. The 3-roller faceplate is available in widths of 3" or 4" to accommodate small precision rollers. With a single roller the diameters can be much larger and only limited by their weight and mounting requirements. 
The MPS  with a cylindrical web roller is well suited for narrow thin tapes, paper, films and webs. The web rollers can be up to 3" long. A wide variety of V and U groove rollers are available for filaments, fiber, tubing,  fine wire, etc.

Standard Model Ranges Available
                        0 - 200 Grams           0 - 500 Grams
                          0 - 1000 Grams         0 - 2000 Grams

All single roller sensor range values are wrap angle dependent.
