Band Tension Meter

Improve process control and production quality with the Tensitron BTX-1 tension meter. Measure the tension of narrow, flat materials, moving or stationary.

The BTX-1 is ideal for nylon straps, seat belts, narrow poly web, flat drive belts, small V belts (up to 1/8 inch stationary), wide tape, pallet securing straps, and more.

For stationary tie-down or ratchet straps up to 4 inches wide and 1/4 inch thick, use the STX-1 strap tension meter.
