Yarn tension sensors – intelligent signals for success
The measuring principle of the yarn tension sensor is based on the proven Hall technology. Here, through the measurement of magnetic field intensity, a signal that is proportional to the yarn tension is converted into voltage. Measuring accuracy over many years proves the reliability of this measuring principle. Also practice-proven is the compact and stable structural design of the sensor.
The sensor is available in 3 main tension ranges:
• Low tension range: PA applications (0-60 cN)
• Standard range: PET applications (0-120 cN)
• High tension range: heavy counts and bulked continuous filament (BCF) applications (0-240 cN).
The yarn tension sensor is the ideal tool for yarn quality management. Highly reliable tension monitoring allows exact supervision at texturing and other industrial machines. Producers benefit from waste reduction and year-round precision and quality reports in filament yarn productions.

Yarn tension sensors: Retech's intelligent signals for success
Retech is a world-leading provider of high-quality components, machines and in-process monitoring systems for the production of synthetic filaments. With over 45 years of experience and a wide portfolio of innovative, accurate and flexible solutions, Retech has built a reputation for reliability as an independent heated godet roll manufacturer. Yarn tension sensors are the perfect tool to help manage yarn quality through precise tension monitoring and measurement of magnetic field intensity.
High reliability with optimal long-term drift
The measuring principle of the yarn tension sensor is based on proven hall technology which accurately measures magnetic field intensity in order to convert it into voltage; this signal is then proportional to the yarn tension. The trustworthiness of this measuring principle has been established time and time again, as its accuracy remains consistent over many years. Additionally, the structural design of the sensor is incredibly compact and robust, leading to high reliability. The sensor itself is available in three ranges depending on applications - low tension range for PA applications (0-60 cN), standard range for PET applications (0-120 cN) and high tension range for heavy counts and bulked continuous filament (BCF) applications (0-240 cN).
Protection from environment & damage prevention
Retech's knowledge and experience enables its methods and technology to withstand even the most severe conditions while still being able to produce exact results that remain unaffected. In addition, each yarn tension sensor contains features such as electronics protection from environment, optimal long-term temperature drift accuracy, built-in overload protection against damage to the sensor, electrostatic discharge protection as well as resistance towards common spin finishes. Most importantly though, these sensors provide producers with waste reduction capabilities as well as year round precision & quality reports in filament yarn productions – all due to intelligent signals from Retech’s reliable sensors.
Retech has been a pioneer in tension monitoring for filament yarns since its successful developments in 1987, with its Win-OLT for DTY underlining the company’s world-leading position. Retech believes that tension is too important to leave up to human eyesight – which is why it provides customers with reliable & accurate yarn tension sensors. Not only do these sensors provide producers with waste reduction capabilities and precision reports, but they also are available with features such as electronics protection from environment, optimal long-term drift temperature drift accuracy, built-in overload protection against damage to the sensor, electrostatic discharge protection and resistance towards common spin finishes. With so many advantages, there’s no doubt that Retech’s yarn tension sensors are the perfect tool for any producer looking to manage their yarn quality.
