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.

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.
MAGPOWR DTR-65 Digital Tension ReadoutRead More
The DTR-65 is an easy choice when needing a tension displayed on a machine panel with the option to also output a tension reference to a drive or PLC for remotely displaying or controlling tension.
A powerful and versatile panel-mounted digital amplifier used to display measured tension locally on a machine panel, the DTR-65 will multiply a millvolt tension signal to a usable 0 to 10 VDC and 4 to 20 mADC analog output.
The DTR-65 is an 1/8 DIN panel mount enclosure that is IP65 protected on the face. It incorporates ease of use and setup with a keypad and a four-segment display, fully programmable low pass filter for each output, tension alarm set points, quick and easy calibration, and even weightless load cell calibration.
MAGPOWR DLCA Digital Load Cell AmplifierRead More
The new Digital Load Cell Amplifier (DLCA) is a low-cost, yet powerful and versatile DIN rail mounted digital amplifier. Even though the DLCA is compact in size it incorporates ease of use, setup with three push buttons, a four-segment display, fully programmable low pass filter for each output, tension alarm set points, quick and easy calibration, and even weightless load cell calibration.
MAGPOWR DLCA-NET Digital Load Cell Amplifiers with Built-in Ethernet CommunicationsRead More
The DLCA NET is a new load cell amplifier with embedded dual port communications including EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, Modbus TCP and EtherCAT. Also included are Rockwell features like EDS File based AOP add on profile, DLR Device Level Ring and PTP time stamping.
The DLCA NET transmits calibrated tension values over the communications to a PLC, HMI or drive to display tension or be used in a tension control loop when not using a MAGPOWR tension control. The DLCA NET is available in 3 mounting options and is available as a single channel version to monitor tension in a single zone with separate left and right load cell inputs or as a dual channel amplifier for 2 separate tension zones.
MAGPOWR TSU Under Pillow Block Load CellsRead More
Ruggedly constructed to stand up to mill duty and with built-in mechanical overload stops in both force directions, MAGPOWR’s TSU Under Pillow Block Load Cells can be bolted under your present roll support bearings and they will accurately measure the tension forces on the machine sensing the roll created by the web. It can display and control the web tension through MAGPOWR tension readouts and controls.
The TSU is best used with two load cells, one under each pillow block bearing that supports the sensing roll, which then will accurately measure the total force on the entire roll created by tension in the web, and the readout will be precisely displayed no matter what the position of the web.
MAGPOWR LC-500G Low Tension Load CellsRead More
Lightweight single strand applications including wire, fiber optics and filament textiles face the requirements of tension measurement. For various reasons, lighter, thinner, finer materials are now demanded, and manufacturers require tension controls that can help facilitate those demands.
MAGPOWR’s Low Tension Load Cells (LC-500G & LC-500GS1) have full wheatstone bridge strain gage configurations, and the meet the same industry leading specifications as all other MAGPOWR load cells. The LC-500G, designed to mount easily into almost any single strand installation, also employs 360 degrees of overload protection preventing the need for recalibration in the event of overload situations. For applications requiring special pulleys, the LC-500GS1 is available with provisions for a customer-supplied pulley.
MAGPOWR TLC Thin Load Cell SeriesRead More
The MAGPOWR TLC load cells are extremely accurate devices used to measure web tension in any unwind, rewind or intermediate web processing application. Delivering precise web tension with low temperature drift due to a full Wheatstone bridge construction, the load cells allow for force measurement and 10 times overload protection in both force directions.
With a low profile design, space between the machine frames dedicated to the load cell is minimized. The load cells can also be mounted on the outside of the machine frames, eliminating any space required for the load cells.
MAGPOWR CL Cantilevered Load Cells for Narrow Web ApplicationsRead More
Load cells are not where operators want to spend their money. MAGPOWR’s CL Cantilever Load Cells facilitate that as they are the most cost effective cantilever load cell on the market. These sensors have the unique ability to accept virtually any roll and shaft assembly. Operators are no longer restricted in design – they simply install one of their spare roll assemblies into the Model CL Load Cell.
MAGPOWR’s CL Cantilever Load Cells are designed to support cantilevered idler rolls in processing machines that have just one side frame. They then accurately measure and control tension in a narrow moving web and are typically used on paper, film, foil, wire, fiber, fabrics or any materials used in the label, tag, tape, printing or converting industry.
These rugged load cells have mechanical overload stops and can be mounted inside or outside of the machine frame.
MAGPOWR GTS Load CellsRead More
The stability and accuracy displayed by MAGPOWR’s GTS Global Load Cell allow the tension to be precisely measured and controlled on a roll. The GTS units, designed to be mounted under standard inch or metric pillow block bearings, measure the load created by the web and acting on the sensing roll.
Two GTS Load Cells should be used, one for each side of the sensing roll, thereby accurately measuring the total web tension force acting on the roll, independent of web width or location. The flexible cable connector eliminates the need for left and right models, as each GTS load cell can be mounted on either side of the machine.
A full Wheatstone bridge is incorporated into each GTS load cell for the maximum accuracy and stability. All sizes are adaptable and pre-drilled and tapped to accept standard inch and metric pillow block bearings.
