The TA500 EIP Tension Amplifier is a compact, single-channel tension transducer interface with EtherNet/IP™ connectivity. It can be used with DFE tension transducers (load cells) to monitor tension in any zone of web or filament processing machinery.
DFE’s Quik-Cal™ push-button zero and calibration eliminates pot adjustments and associated drift to make calibrating the TA500 simple, fast and reliable. Powered by 24 VDC, the amplifier boosts a millivolt-level tension signal from tension transducers (load cells) and provides simultaneous EtherNet/IP™, 0-10 VDC and 4-20 mA connections to interface with a PLC, drive or display meter.
Built-in diagnostic capability quickly identifies faulty load cells, incorrect wiring, calibration issues and amplifier ADC/DAC failure.
The compact size and diverse integration capabilities of the TA500 EIP tension amplifier make it a preferred option for OEMs and end users seeking next-generation monitoring and control solutions designed to support Industry 4.0.
