Intrinsically safe explosion-proof MB tension sensor

Intrinsically safe explosion-proof MB tension sensor



Provides security, stability, and safety even in explosion-proof environments

It is used for tension control devices or tension meters.
The tension ratings range from 100N to 5000N, making it possible to handle a wide range of products.


  • Intrinsically safe explosion-proof design (can be installed in hazardous locations where there is a risk of steam of flammable or explosive gas)
  • MB tension sensors offer performance and reliability
  • Can be used over a wide range of tensions, from low to high
  • A wide angle of resultant tension force makes these sensors easy to install
  • MB tension sensors are strain-gauge types with high sensitivity and good responsiveness

  1.  Roller displacement indicates the displacement of the roller per load of 1 N. 
  2.  Allowable roller weight for rated tension indicates the permissible roller weight in double-sided detection. 
  3.  If the MB06□S, MB12□S or MB26□S is supplied with a wall mounting bracket (optional), the suffix (-W) will be added to their model names. (Example: MB12BS-W)
