New HD Tension Indicator Developed by Montalvo

The i4-HD tension indicator from MontalvoGORHAM, MA | The Montalvo Corp. has developed a new tension indicator designed to provide accurate and repeatable web tension. The i4-HD offers either single or multiple tension zone monitoring and can be supplied with analog or LCD digital meter displays.

The unit is said to provide excitation voltage as well as zero and calibration circuitry; a measurement range that accommodates most applications; a 24-volt alarm output with an adjustable trip point; and an output that can interface with PLC, PC, or DC/AC or servo drives. It is compatible with most semiconductor strain gauge and foil gauge load cells and the full range of Montalvo load cells.
