Spyder Plus Tension Control

   Designed for precise tension control, MAGPOWR’s cost-effective Spyder Tension Control is capable of controlling web tension in closed-loop, open-loop, unwind, rewind, point-to-point or dancer applications. It measures tension from one or more MAGPOWR load cells and outputs a corrective analog signal to control a torque device. Its reduced size means it can be hidden away in an enclosure or underneath the machine.With its Ethernet connection, the easy-to-use Spyder can be viewed on a web browser for remote troubleshooting, programming and/or data collection. Additionally, the Spyder provides an analog input for Manual Level setpoint, control inputs for Run/Stop, Auto/Manual: Tension On/Off, and E-Stop, and a 0-1 mADC meter output proportional to measured tension.The most recent version of the Spyder - Spyder Plus - adds the ability to control open loop applications, advanced features for dancer applications, and the ability to interface and share data remotely. Spyder Plus now has powerful features for dancer applications that were once only available with more expensive controls. Dancer mode now allows the unique ability to use load cells to monitor web tension, while remote setpoint adjustment improves efficiency, especially when multiple controls are used in the same application. Spyder Plus also works with third party ultrasonic or laser sensors to determine roll diameter.
