Open loop Tension Control System TCD030T

Open loop Tension Control System TCD030T


The TCD030T is a controller for controlling the tension of a web at the unwinder or winder, without using a tension sensor. The roll diameter is calculated by using a signal from a gate generator mounted on the winding/unwinding reel, and a control signal corresponding to the change in the roll diameter is delivered.


  • Non-contact detection of roll diameter

    The roll diameter is detected without any contact being made using a gate generator attached to a winding/unwinding reel. Therefore, the material is not exposed to damage.

  • Easy to operate

    It is operated just by setting the roll radius and the web thickness.

  • Stop output circuit incorporated

    A stop output signal is generated when stopping an unwinder. The reel is stopped without slackening the web.

  • Applicable to various brakes/clutches

    It is available with voltages of 0 to 10V and currents of 4 to 20 mA for control outputs. Combined with a converter, it can control an electromagnetic brake/clutch or an air brake/clutch.

  • Applicable to very thin webs as well as to very thick webs

    The web is available in thicknesses of 1 µm to 9.99 mm.
