Automechanika Innovation Award

Mini frequency gauge was voted among the top 5 at the Automechanika Innovation Award (category Repair & Diagnostics).

Belt Tension Tester Mini smaller and more user-friendly

A compact-format frequency gauge is now available as an alternative to the proven Belt Tension Tester. In the Belt Tension Tester Mini (BTT Mini) Continental offers workshops a compact frequency gauge, with the help of which the correct tension can be set in the belt drive. The company is using the latest technology in miniature so that it can provide workshops with a smart tool with which the belt tension can be reliably tested even when space is very tight. Among the currently available frequency gauges it is unique at present in terms of size and function.

The BTT Mini, which was voted among the top 5 in the category Repair & Diagnostics at the Automechanika Innovation Award, is attached directly to the belt, where it measures the belt’s oscillation frequency with the aid of an acceleration sensor. The relevant measuring points and frequencies for the respective belt drive can be found under Measuring and Fitting Tools at These details ensure the belt tension is always set correctly – the most crucial factor for a long service life for the belt and components.
