MB Tension Sensor

MB Tension Sensor


The MB Tension Sensor was designed to be used with a tension controller or tension meter. It supports a wide range of products, with any tension range. The MB Tension Sensor has long been a strong seller, since sales were launched 20 years ago.



  • Proven Track Record and Reliability

    Without bearings or similar mechanical contacts, and employing a non-contact detection method using a differential transformer, the MB Tension Sensor is highly responsive with low hysteresis. The compact size also requires little space for installation.

  • Easy to Install

    The MB 05, 11, and 25 can be installed at any angle.

  • Wide Selection of Sensors

    1. Full range available, from low tension (100 N full scale) to high tension (10,000 N full scale)
    2. ②All sensors have intrinsically safe construction.
  • Overload Resistant

    The durable construction provides resistance to momentary overloads.

Applicable bearings
  1. Figures for rated tension and allowable roll weight are for double-sided detection. For single detection the above figures should be halved.
  2. A 5m cable with connectors for connection to an amplifier is supplied.
  3. MB05, MB11 and MB25 can be wall mounted with a bracket. If the unit is equipped with a bracket, “-W” is added to the end of its model name. e.g. MB11B-W.
  4. Sensors with inherently intrinsic safety construction are also available. “S” is added to the end of the corresponding model name. e.g. MB11BS.
