German term or phrase: Pendelarmspanner
Hi,

This term appears in the following paragraph taken from an article related to belt drives.

Die Bewertung soll im Gesamtsystem erfolgen. Zu diesem Zwecke wurde eine Sensitivitätsanalyse an den ausgewählten Konzepten, zwei Riemenspanner und Pendelarmspanner-Lösung durchgeführt. Um die Ergebnisse vergleichen zu können wurde der Standardtrieb mit betrachtet.

Could it probably mean "pivot arm tensioner"?

Thank you very much.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  Ken Cox: highly unlikely that the English word 'spanner' would be used directly in German in this context in place of the German word Spanner = tensioner or the like
