The belt tension measuring device can measure the belt tension of timing belts, ribbed belts and V-belts. Belt tension is an important parameter for the maintenance, installation, setting up, and repair of the belt drives. The belt tension has to be controlled regularly over the entire running time and adjusted if necessary to ensure the maximum possible service life of all the machine components in the periphery of the belt. It is very important that the preload force is selected according to the forces to be transmitted. Principally here applies, the greater the forces to be transmitted and the greater the belt speed during operation, the greater the preload forces that must be selected. At the same time, it is necessary to ensure that the belt tension is not set too high, since otherwise the bearings of the belt drives can be affected and, at the same time, the belt-wear increases which may cause belt cracks. At the same time, too low belt tension can also cause damage when, for example, teeth skipping or the belt slipping occurs. Because of that it is important to determine the belt tension or the preload force with a belt tension measuring device. This may help to significantly reduce the follow-up costs occurring due to the unplanned standstill and downtime caused by the bearing damage or by the defective belts. The use of a belt tension measuring device is therefore suitable for applications
