Systematic Automation’s Screen Tension Meter

Eliminates drag with electronic indicator.

Systematic Automation has added the Model JH-59 screen tension meter, which employs a stainless-steel weight to deflect the screen fabric and calculate the tension rather than the conventional springs and mechanisms common to other tension meters. Its wheelbase is reportedly twice as large as other meters to increase its accuracy. The JH-59 also features an electronic display unlike the dials found in conventional units and allows the user to switch from metric (millimeters) to imperial (inches) at the touch of a button.
