Belt Tension Gauge Drive belts achieve maximum lifetime and efficiency when tensioned to the manufacturers recommended tension.
The newRTM-400PLUS Belt Tension Gage provides an easy, reliable method for accurately measuring static tension in flat, V-, cog or toothed belts of rubber, leather, fabric, plastic and composite materials. The RTM-400PLUSs Belt tension gage hand-held, LED-optical sensor is cable-connected to the gauge body, which contains a microprocessor that converts the sensor signal to a pre-selected reading of either Belt Vibration Frequency (Hertz) or Belt Tension (Newtons [N] or pounds / force [lbf]). Results are displayed on a bright, easy-to-read LCD display. An acoustic signal indicates a successful measurement.
The RTM-400PLUSs Belt Tension Gauge LED-optical sensor is unaffected by ambient noise, offering improved performance versus competitive, acoustic sensor-based designs.
