Optibelt’s quick, accurate and reliable belt tension tester is ideal for plenty of applications and reduces downtime.
Optibelt’s TT line frequency tension tester provides the most accurate and fastest way to test the tension of drive belts by measuring the frequency of vibration, resulting in extended belt and pulley life and a reduction in downtime.
The compact design of the Optibelt TT line tester offers universal application possibilities from an endless range of drives in engineering, in automotive and transport industries and also many other technical applications in industry. It is designed for even the most difficult to reach places making it ideal for quickly checking the tensions of V-belts, ribbed belts, kraftbands and timing belts.
After switching it on, the appliance is ready to transfer data immediately with the measuring head held over the belt. Two red L.E.D lights in the measuring head combine into one as a distance of 40 65mm to position it accurately over the belt. The tensioned belt is then made to vibrate by plucking it by fingers or striking it with an object.
The Optibelt tension tester immediately starts taking readings showing the results in hertz (Hz) regardless of the condition or colour of the belt.
Tension recommendations can be taken from Optibelt specifications CAP drive design calculations or the Optibelt App. It is interference free with measuring methods EM: electromagnetic waves and AC: acceleration integrated.
If there is too much movement when testing the red lights will turn off and the display will show ‘Rapid Move’ until the tester is steady at which point the display will show ‘Ready’.
The Optibelt TT tension tester can also be used on long centre distances due to an unprecedented wide high frequency range of AC: 1-16Hz and EM: 6-600Hz. The tester can be used on 300 belt measurements before the battery requires recharging and is not affected by noise of UV light. For those hard to reach belt spans, the measuring head has a flexible goose neck and a 250mm cable AC.
The unit has a large easy to read back lit display screen of 43mm wide and 53mm high, a USB port for recharging and an automatic switch-off.
The Optibelt TT comes in a kit containing the tension tester, measuring head, charger, USB cable and a clipper for holding the measuring head and is available from automotive, transport and industrial wholesalers.
