Maxcess (Oklahoma City, Oklahoma), a leader in innovative products and services for web handling applications, announced the release of three tension amplifiers from MAGPOWR with advanced networking capabilities. Announced are the DLCA NET, DLCA NET-Slim and DLCA NET-IP65, with the slim catering to applications where panel space is crucial and the IP65 to applications where tension values can be converted to communications on the machine itself without going back to a control panel.
“With our new line of amplifiers that include built-in networking capabilities, we are offering EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, Modbus TCP, an embedded web server and EtherCAT for the first time in a tension amplifier,” said Chris Harper, global product manager for MAGPOWR Tension Control. “This family of amplifiers and its included features allow for fast and easy integration into machine control networks and adds high performance and enhanced reliability to web tension measurement.”
The new line of amplifiers transmits calibrated tension values from one or two tension zones over dual port communications and offers EDS file AOP, DLR Ring, PTP time stamping, alarms and an embedded web server for setup and calibration.
“Maxcess has always been at the forefront of technological advancements for web handling applications, and the release of the DLCA NET family of amplifiers is no exception,” said Greg Jehlik, CEO of Maxcess. “We will be leveraging these advanced networking capabilities through future product offerings across our storied brands under the Maxcess umbrella.”
