Roll-2-Roll Technologies Web Sensors

Roll-2-Roll Sensors can measure edge position, contrast position, position of a line on the web, web width, count and monitor threads of any material without the need for any setup or calibration. The sensing principle relies on light scattering and spatial filtering properties of fiber optics to accurately determine the web position. The web position sensor is essentially an affordable vision based sensing system different web sensing applications.

Turck Linear Encoder

Turck’s linear position sensors are available in a variety of sensing technologies that provide a designer with a variety of options when deciding which solution best fits the application.

Inductive linear position sensors are non-contact sensors using the R-L-C principle of operation, with measuring ranges up to 1,000 mm.

Magnetic linear position sensors are non-contact sensors using external magnets with imbedded hall effect sensors measuring ranges up to 200 mm.

Magnetostrictive linear position sensors are non-contact sensors using external magnets measuring ranges up to 300 in.

Draw wire (or cable pull) are mechanically operated devices with measuring ranges up to 40 m.

MAGPOWR Power Supplies and Amplifiers

Complete control is the goal of any operation utilizing brakes and clutches. MAGPOWR’s PS-24 & PS-90 Power Supplies provide a small amount of reverse current circuitry as a standard feature to minimize the drag torque of a clutch/brake, allowing greater controllability in the lowest torque range.

These power supply units control any size MAGPOWR clutch or brake with optimum resolution. MAGPOWR’s current-regulated power supplies are used for the control of magnetic particle clutches and brakes in unwind, rewind, or intermediate tension control applications. With selectable current ranges, these compact enclosures can be mounted inside the machine cabinet, allowing your operator to adjust torque through a remotely mounted potentiometer or with a 0 to 10 vdc control signal from MAGPOWR Open Loop and Closed Loop controllers, or any control device like a computer or PLC.
