MAGPOWR Global Series BrakesRead More
Versatility and flexibility are the real benefits found in MAGPOWR’s Global Series Magnetic Particle Brakes, as they provide smooth, repeatable, controllable torque independent of speed. This makes them suitable for all kinds of power transmission and tensioning applications. Sizes are available from 5.5 to 325 lb-ft of torque.
This line of brakes features state-of-the-art magnetic particle technology and its compact size is due to through-bores on all machined housings for ease of mounting. The M (Metric) series boasts full metric bores and keyways, as well as metric mounting hardware and setscrews to support international design requirements. The brakes are also available as 24 vdc or 90 vdc.
Models available by Rated Torque:
GBA: 7.5 Nm (5.5 lb-ft)
GBB: 14 Nm (11 lb-ft)
GBC: 35 Nm (26 lb-ft)
GBD: 75 Nm (56 lb-ft)
GBE: 135 Nm (100 lb-ft)
GBF: 441 Nm (325 lb-ft)
MAGPOWR PA-90 and PA-2 Power AmplifiersRead More
MAGPOWR’s PA-90 and PA-2 Power Amplifiers are designed to provide the extra current required for controlling magnetic particle brakes and clutches in any tension control application. For use with DIGITRAC II, EZ-Trac, or VERSATEC, the PA-90 and PA-2 can be mounted inside the control’s enclosure, and receives its control signals directly from the tension control.
The PA-90 is used to control 90 VDC brakes and clutches only, while the PA-2 can be used to control either 24 or 90 VDC units. MAGPOWR’s power amplifiers also include reverse current circuitry as a standard feature, thus allowing greater controllability in the lowest torque range of the clutch or brake being operated.
MAGPOWR DFP2 Follower Arm Sensor PositionersRead More
The goal in dancer/follower arm applications is to utilize the dancer arm for increased accuracy in tension control, eliminating dependence on an operator and achieve automatic control of the braking torque on the unwind roll — resulting in constant web tension.
MAGPOWR’s compact DFP-2 is perfect for use in dancer control applications with the MAGPOWR VERSATEC, and in dancer and follower arm applications with the Spyder and DFC-90. It offers the same exceptional sensing performance as the original DFP sensor, but in a lighter duty, low cost housing.
The DFP-2 also includes a servo-type flexible coupling to allow for misalignment in shaft-to-shaft applications as well as 15 feet of shielded cabling for ease of installation. The DFP and DFP-2 use the same conductive plastic element to measure dancer and follower arm positions.
MAGPOWR US-2 Ultrasonic SensorRead More
Scrap is essentially waste, and waste represents reduced profits. An effective way to reduce scrap and therefore maximize profits is by increasing the accuracy and control of the web. MAGPOWR’s US-2 Ultrasonic Sensor used with VERSATEC control measures the diameter of the roll and allows your core and full roll alarms to be adjusted to give your operator proper notification before reaching the end of the roll. This fully automated ultrasonic tension control system allows you to reduce scrap by utilizing the entire roll on your web.
MAGPOWR ISR Tension Sensing RollerRead More
The MAGPOWR ISR series is a dead shaft tension sensing roller supported on both sides that uses tension sensors embedded in the roller to provide a signal proportional to tension in any unwind, rewind or intermediate web processing application.
When installed in place of a standard dead shaft idler roller, the ISR integrated tension sensing roller delivers precise web tension measurement with low temperature drift due to full Wheatstone bridge
construction on each load cell inside the roller.
MAGPOWR Intrinsically Safe Load Cell AmplifierRead More
Safety is the key to any operation, that’s why the MAGPOWR IS-2 Intrinsically Safe Load Cell Amplifier is so valuable and important. The Model IS-2 amplifier provides intrinsically safe circuitry for UL Listed MAGPOWR load cells. It is specifically designed for safe, accurate measuring and controlling web tension in hazardous locations. When used with UL listed MAGPOWR load cells, the IS-2 is UL approved for Class I, Groups A, B, C and D; Class II, Groups E, F, G and Class III. This allows the load cells to be mounted directly in the hazardous area without air purging. The IS-2 amplifier is compatible with all MAGPOWR UL listed load cells, tension readouts and tension controls.
MAGPOWR CSR Tension Sensing RollerRead More
The MAGPOWR CSR series is a cantilevered tension sensing roller that uses tension sensors embedded in the roller to provide a signal proportional to tension in any unwind, rewind or intermediate web processing application.
When installed in place of a standard machine idler roller, the CSR tension sensing roller delivers precise web tension measurement with low temperature drift due to a full Wheatstone bridge construction on each load cell inside the roller.
MAGPOWR TSA Load Cell AmplifierRead More
When performance matters, the TSA Load Cell Amplifiers from MAGPOWR are head and shoulders above the competition, especially in the areas of drift and linear performance. These load cell amplifiers can measure tension in any moving web, wire, or strand.
Load cell amplifiers provide power to one or two full- or half-bridge load cells, and amplify the tension measurement signal for display or feedback to any control device. They also allow maximum flexibility in the tension sensing range of any size sensor by providing a gain control range of 8:1 and a tare adjustment of 50 percent of the sensor rating.
