MAGPOWR’s VERSATEC Versatile Tension Control provides true ease of use and extreme flexibility with its wide range of functions and operating modes. The VERSATEC Versatile Tension Control is a multi-function automatic tension or process controller that uses the US-2 Ultrasonic Sensor to measure distance and roll diameter. It has selectable operating modes for Unwind, Rewind, Dancer, Free Loop, or Ranging applications. This flexibility eliminates the need to learn the operation of different controls for different tension zones.
All setup and operating screens on the VERSATEC unit are indicated directly on the multi-line alphanumeric menu driven display in real words, not codes, with the corresponding values or status. From the keypad and display, you can control all operating parameters for any operating mode, including tension, distance, dancer position, loop position, alarm set points, security, language and units, and setup selection.
