Tension Motors

HTI Technology offers an integrated tension motor assembly, consisting of a motor, custom housing, and cabling system. This style of motor is used extensively within the exercise and fitness industry, specifically in treadmills, elliptical equipment, and recumbent bicycles. Currently offered in three different configurations, the tension motor provides resistance in the equipment to help the user create a more difficult and strenuous workout. HTI tension motors have a built-in potentiometer that works in conjunction with the equipment computer to accurately control the resistance settings in any given exercise program. The tension motor may also be used in a variety of other applications where tensioning requirements or linear actuation may exist.
