Compact tension controller offers keypad or Ethernet set-up

Compact tension controller offers keypad or Ethernet set-up New from Warwick based Motion Drives and Control is the Magpowr Spyder, which provides cost-effective tension control for brakes, clutches or drives in unwind, rewind and point-to-point applications. Available for both dancer and load cell applications, the compact 35mm DIN-rail mounted unit is ideal for cabinet mounting and includes parameter based set-up via a user-friendly keypad and display or Ethernet connectivity for web browser or HMI installation. The Spyder delivers an advanced PID algorithm that allows processing equipment designers to fit and forget this intrinsic part of the machine with minimal cost. With simple tuning, adjustable taper tension and security lockout, the Spyder provides consistent and precise web tension control without specialist training. With a compact volume of less than 160x60x90mm, the IP20 rated Spyder will mount neatly in a control cabinet. Supply requirements are 24V DC at 250mA and inputs include load cell, dancer position with tension setpoint, manual setpoint, E-stop, run/stop, tension off and auto/manual. Outputs available cover torque and tension meter. A user-friendly membrane keypad and a 2-line LCD display are used for parameter based set-up, whilst an Ethernet communication interface covers TCP/IP web server and FTP client with html browser file format.
