MG Tension Sensor

MG Tension Sensor


The MG Tension Sensor was designed to be used with a tension controller or tension meter. It features compact and rigid construction, high accuracy, reduced temperature drift and high response.

  • With excellent temperature characteristics, the compact size saves space as well.
  • Additionally, non-contact detection using a differential transformer yields improved precision.
