The PCE BTM 2000A Belt Tension Force Meter is an optically measuring maintenance tool for determining the belt tension force. It consists of a display device and a sensor head attached on a semi-flexible gooseneck. The advantage of the gooseneck is that the sensor head can be flexibly positioned. Due to the mobility of the gooseneck, the sensor can measure the strand force even in hard to reach places. The belt tension measuring device measures the belt tension (in Newton) and the belt frequency (in Hz) of the belt in the stationary state.

A small impulse on the belt is sufficient to set the belt vibrating. The devise measures with the sensor the natural frequency of the belt generated in this way and visualizes it on the display. The meter can directly determine the actual tension (in Newton / Pound Force) of the belt from the belt frequency combined with the optionally entered belt length and belt mass. However, entering this data is not necessarily required in order to carry out the measurements directly with the belt tension measuring device. The measurement units in the device can be switched between N (SI unit) and pound force (US unit).

The reading is always shown as the belt frequency in Hz on the display of the belt tension measuring device. The intuitive graphic menu is visualized on the high-contrast display of the belt tension measuring device in six different languages. Up to 750 data records can be stored in the memory of the belt tension measuring device. The belt tension measuring device is delivered completely ready for use. The scope of delivery includes the handheld device, the standard sensor with gooseneck, a magnetic holder, batteries and operating manual. To increase the flexibility during the measurement, the following items are optionally available to the belt tension meter: an external sensor head with a spiral cable, a device hard case, a frequency mallet and a tripod.

  • What's the difference between this and the PCE-BTM 2000?

    The only difference in the PCE-BTM 2000 and the PCE-BTM 2000A is that the later is a newer design with a different outer case. All of the features and functions are exactly the same.
