SM5 Tension Meter

The SM5 Tension Meter is designed to measure the static tension of all belt types and materials (timing belts, flat belts, V-belts) regardless of the tension member material. The SM5 is more accurate and easier to use than force deflection or elongation method. Use it with the free SM5 Pretension Calculator is a companion app available on iOS. When ordering, specify if you want an SM5 tension meter with a probe or without a probe.

Key Product Features

Correct pre-tension enhanced the belt drive by:

  • Increasing service life
  • Improving reliability
  • Minimizing bearing load
  • Advancing positioning accuracy
  • Reducing noise level

The peripheral force (force transmitted through the belt) must be known to determine a recommended pre-tension. These recommendations are general and offered as a starting point. Adjustments may be necessary as determined by system performance. Having the Free SM5 Pretension Calculator App can help. Get it today for iOS or Android
