SDP/SI provides a convenient, hassle-free way to test belt tension. The Gates® Sonic Tension Meter 507C is compact, light and easy-to-use. The Sonic Tension Meter works on the theory that belts, like guitar strings, vibrate at a particular natural frequency based on mass and span length.

Here's how it works:
Enter the belt mass constant, belt width and span length into the meter. Hold the meter alongside the belt span, then strum the belt to make it vibrate - it's that simple. The meter will measure the vibration and convert it into belt tension.

The Sonic Tension Meter is suitable for multi-ribbed belts, V-belts and synchronous belts. The output readings are measurable in hertz, pounds, kilograms, and newtons. It has an LCD backlight and a cord sensor, and other optional accessories are also available. Because the meters are so versatile, accurate and simple to use, less time is wasted on setup and maintenance of the belt drive system.
