TensionRite® Belt Frequency Meter


The number one cause of power transmission belt failure is improper tensioning.


TensionRite Belt Frequency Meter from the trusted brand of Goodyear Engineered Products provides a simple, repeatable and reliable method for tensioning belts using optical technology. It displays the natural vibration frequency of a belt strand so you can closely monitor belt tension. The device calculates the corresponding belt tension in either English or SI units.


Features and Benefits:

  • Quartz crystal based solid-state circuitry
    • Little, if any, calibration required*
    • No gain adjustment, filters or alternate sensor heads required
  • Direct rather than indirect measurement of vibration frequency
    • Senses movement of the belt, not the disturbances of the air adjacent to the belt
    • Unaffected by ambient noise level or air currents
  • Meter range matches “real life” belt installation parameters
    • The fundamental vibration frequency of most commonly used power transmission belts trends to the low end of the scale (< 400Hz)
    • Meter can be used with all belt types

      * Individual requirements may dictate the need for re-calibration to meet overall quality procedures.
