Tension sensor 125.12 LFX at narrow available space and difficult accessible positions
• spinning, texturizing, research laboratories, weaving mills, knitting mills, twisting mills etc. • for synthetic fibers, natural and texturized yarns, POY etc. • for difficult accessible locations • material speed up to more than 7000m/min • ceramic thread guides • minimal influence on the product being measured • available in 8 rated load ranges: 0 to 10cN ... 0 to 500cN
The sensors in this series are designed to measure tensile forces in textile threads. They find applications in spinning mills, texturizing operations, research laboratories, weaving mills, knitting mills, yarn spinning plants etc. The slim design in addition to the long measuring fingers enables the user to measure at narrow available space and difficult accessible, distant locations. Comfortable and safe handling even on measurements in a heat chamber by lever-operated auto-threading function.
Thread guides The non-rotating ceramic thread guides have a gentle surface with low coefficient of friction.
Standard: • structured surface (orange peel), especially for flat yarn
Option: • polished surface, e.g. for texturized yarn
• extra-long fingers (probes) to reach any inconvenient place • special clip type lever for safe and comfortable threading even at high temperatures at the measuring location • slim design, long measuring fingers, low interference contour • small yarn deflection angle for - minimum interference to yarn path and twist - low mechanical load to the thread • ceramic thread guides with a surface which is gentle on the threads - low friction and low stress for the yarn even at high speeds • high measuring precision and long-term stability • robust by effective overload protection (1000% related to the rated load) • high natural frequency for use at line speeds > 7000m/min • red thread guides; white thread is optically distinguished from the guide
