LX Series Digital Tension Meter
Product Announcement from Cooper Instruments & Systems
The tension scale is adjustable for measuring in Lbs, Kg or Newtons, in ranges above 5 pounds. The large, easy-to-read backlit display shows Tension, Battery Charge Level, and Material selected. A memory button allows for storage of up to five separate tension readings, plus and average of these values. The instrument is available in two models. The LX utilizes a grooved pulley for measuring round-shaped materials. The LXR employs a non-grooved 1" wide pulley for measuring flat, thin materials such as tapes or ribbons. Select the material and size, and the instrument automatically adjusts the calibration from preprogrammed data. Or store up to ten custom calibrations in the instrument. Both models are available in two separate ranges, 5-25 Lbs, and 25-500 Lbs. Operated from either rechargeable batteries or AC power, the units shutoff automatically after 10 minutes of non-use.
