The TI15 tension indicator displays web tension in any of
three ways. A three position rotary switch on the front of the enclosure
allows the machine operator to select total tension or display the tension
at either side of the web. This makes it easy to equalize the tension
at the edges by means of appropriate manual or automatic adjustments to
the machine. The TI15 works with a Tension Roll® transducer or a pair
of standard DFE tension transducers to measure web tension. The shaft-end
transducers are mounted one on each end of a dead or live shaft idler
roll. The output signal from the transducers is amplified by the TI15
and displayed on a large meter which is calibrated to read actual tension.
The voltage output, proportional to tension, can be used simultaneously
from each channel, with a recorder, computer or automatic control system.
No risk. The TI15 is covered by DFE’s 5 year warranty.
Tension Indicator Benefits
Displays actual web tension
at either side of web to permit equalization side to side. Also displays
total tension. No guesswork.
Can be interfaced with control
systems for automatic control of tension.
Enables the machine operator
to determine proper tension for any web and consistently reproduce that
tension any time that job is run.
Reduces web breaks and web
