Need control of a dancer, follower arm or both? No problem, as MAGPOWR’s DFC-90 and DFC-A low-cost tension controls can handle either operation mode.
Dancer Mode: The DFC-90 and DFC-A are full PID closed-loop dancer controls, controlling web tension by sensing the position of the dancer arm through a DFP or DFP-2 Position Sensor and adjusting the clutch, brake or motor control torque accordingly to maintain the dancer position set point.
Follower Arm Mode: The DFC-90 and DFC-A control web tension by compensating for measured changes in the roll diameter. Roll diameter changes are measured through the DFP or DFP-2 Position Sensor and a follower arm. An optional Stop Multiplier provides additional stopping torque to help stop large unwind rolls.
MAGPOWR Engineers have developed software to help you select the best clutch, brake or load cell for your application. Contact us at +1.405.755.1600 to verify sizing or ask questions.
