Model Ti15 TrueTension™ Left-Right-Total Indicator

A three position rotary switch on the front of the enclosure allows the machine operator to select total tension or display the tension at either side of the web. This makes it easy to equalize the tension at the edges by means of appropriate manual or automatic adjustments to the machine. The Ti15 works with a Tension Roll® transducer or a pair of standard DFE tension transducers to measure web tension. The shaft-end transducers are mounted one on each end of a dead or live shaft idler roll. The output signal from the itransducers is amplified by the TI15 and displayed on a large meter which is calibrated to read actual tension. The voltage output, proportional to tension, can be used simultaneously from each channel, with a recorder, computer or automatic control system. No risk. The Ti15 is covered by DFE’s 5 year warranty.

Roll Shell Transducer

Dover’s Roll Shell Transducer (RS) was a special variation on the Model C transducer that, when used in pairs, attached into each end of an idler roll shell. Without other shaft or external bearing hardware, this transducer provided for a quick and easy tension-sensing roll installation at an attractive total hardware cost.

THN Transducer

The THN (thin) transducer was a sophisticaled electro-mechanical device that measured tension in any kind of continuous web.
