Multi-Zone Web Tension Transmitter: Model DXt-40
DXt-40 Tension Transmitters measure up
to four independent web points, or zones,
to ensure maximum operating speeds
without belt, felt, or product breakage.
Each zone is precisely measured with
750,000 count resolution and produces a
corresponding, high resolution, 4-20mA
output. Total, individual, and differential
outputs from two transducers (load cells)
permit a comparison of tension signals on
either side of a sheet, strip, or web.
Digital calibration eliminates time
consuming dead weight loading and
machine ‘strapping’. With four integral
operating modes, DXt-40 transmitters offer
wide operating flexibility and easy
installation. Simply select the mode that
matches your application, enter the
transducer zero and span values, and
begin system operation.
When combined with unique HTU
transducers, units measure both horizontal
and vertical tension vectors. Based upon
both measurements, software algorithms
calculate the precise, resultant force vector
and exact linear tension component.
