Established in 1978, PIES Australia is an Australian-owned Company that supply power transmission equipment. The SM4 Digital Universal Belt Tension Meter from PIES Australia is designed to measure the static tension (Hz) of belts, such as timing belts, flat belts and V-belts in all materials, regardless of the tension member material. The SM4 is more accurate and easier to use than force deflection or elongation methods.
Tensioning belts with the SM4 Digital Universal Belt Tension Meter enhances the performance of any belt drive by eliminating over-tensioning or under-tensioning. Correct tensioning results in:
- Increased belt and bearing life
- Improved tooth meshing
- Improved positional accuracy
- Reduced noise levels
- Reduced friction and vibration
The SM4 Digital Universal Belt Tension Meter has a frequency range of 6 – 350 Hz and an accuracy of +/- 5%.The SM4 operates on a 9V battery (supplied) and is supplied with a protective cover and operating instructions in a carrying case.
