Magna-ELC
ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED LET-OFF
(United States Patent #6,527,216)
FEATURES & BENEFITS
  • Maximum wire speed - 700m (2300ft)/minute
  • Digital input of tension - individual strand tension monitoring & control
  • Spindles are independent - purchase only the number of spindles required for your application
  • ELC assemblies are individual units and can be used with a variety of wire bobbin winders
  • The ELC provides for improved hose reinforcement, fewer cross-overs leading to increased burst pressure, longer impulse life and less braider machine downtime

Closed-Loop Tension Control
  1. The desired wire tension is input into the push-button potentiometer
  2. The load cell will measure the running tension and send the reading to the control system (PID board)
  3. The control system (PID board) will compare it to the desired tension and output the result to the digital tension meter
  4. The appropriate voltage will be output to the magnetic particle brake to control the tension
