CONTI® VSM 1/3/Mini Tension Tauges

Electronic measurement of belt tension.

The correct initial tension in force and form-locked belt drives is essential to ensuring the trouble-free, long-term operation of drives in industrial applications.

The CONTI® VSM-1, VSM-3 and VSM Mini tension gauges are fully electronic measuring instruments that have been specially designed to measure the initial tension of timing belts, poly-V-belts and V-belts.

They can be used to simply and precisely set the static strand force of belt drives, irrespective of their tension members.
