EasyView™ Indicators
Tension indicator, panel-mount or in enclosure, with large digital or analog readouts. Displays actual tension from tension transducers. The EasyView Indicator is a compact, general-purpose tension display device.

Models Ti25
In addition to amplifying the signal output from tension transducers installed in the web path and displaying actual tension on a 2.5 inch analog meter, the EasyView Tension Indicator powers the tension transducer (or transducer pair) and provides an additional isolated 0-to-10Vdc signal output proportional to tension for a drive, controller or PLC.  

For mounting on a wall or machine frame, the EasyView Tension Indicator is available in a compact, steel, full enclosure (E). As an alternate configuration there is an open, flat Panel (P) version for mounting into a cutout on an OEM operator panel or cabinet.

Electrical connections are made at a closed terminal strip accessed via conduit through a 7/8 inch hole in the enclosure bottom.

Integrated electrical isolation, package options, ease-of-installation, ease-of-viewing, and low cost make the EasyView indicator a popular choice for web tension monitoring or control applications.

EasyView operates on 24Vdc, power supplied separately.

EasyView indicators are designed to conform to CE and UL regulations: EN61010 requirements for Safety, EN61326 requirements for EMI, and UL61010 for safety. 


  • Small unit-measures just 3.5 inches x 4 inches x 3.5 inches
  • Uses Quick-Cal™ push-button Zero and Calibration. This eliminates potentiometer adjustments to make calibrating simple and fast.
  • Large 2.5 inch tension readout, analog or digital
  • Rugged Steel Enclosure
  • Mounts on a wall, machine frame or just about any tight space
  • 50:1 calibration range.
  • Powered by 24 VDC
  • I/O connections made via terminal strip
  • Integrated electrical isolation--0 to 10 Vdc isolated output proportional to tension.
  • Competitive price-best value for a low cost
  • CE-marked



  • EasyView improves machine operation and productivity by making it easier to run proper tension, gain a higher level of process control and reductions of waste, web breaks, and other web problems.
  • EasyView is a low-cost tension indicator for a transducer-based tension measurement or control system.Unparalleled Output Stability. Drift-free performance even over wide temperature swings for tension monitoring signal stability.
  • Safe and reliable performance. Integrated Isolation and Circuit stabilization–including built-in noise and surge protection, short-circuit protection, and active current-limiting on the transducer excitation signal.
