WR701-Firmware: Winding and Tension Applications

in combinations with Motion Controller MC700

The firmware WR701 is suitable to realize a wide range of combinations of drives with rewinder, uncoiler, line drive, web tension control and transverse routing. The winding diameters at rewinders and unwinders are continuously determined and the rotational speeds are controlled so that the web speed remains constant. Suitable for "stand-alone" applications as well as for connection to PLC or PC or fieldbus systems.

Suitable for simple control of up to 4 drives with 16-speed winding applications. The controller includes a controllable web tension control via dancers or measuring bearings, a virtual guide axis for precise control of the system speed, as well as a built-in transverse installation for winding cables, ribbons, etc.

  • MC700 is a universal motion controller for 1 to 4 axis, programmable for multiple motion applications by simple download of the corresponding function firmware
  • With use of our WR701 firmware (see Support) this unit provides advantageous solutions with many common applications of winding, rewinding, traverse and tension control
  • Different from most other winding controls, the principle of this system is not based on torque control, but uses high-precision speed control with special real-time diameter calculations. For this reason the controller provides superior features with fast start-stop-start cycle on rewinding machines,  and also  with applications requiring low tension or even tension-free winding characteristics
  • Black-box unit for cabinet mounting
  • Remote control and communication facilities via external operator terminal, serial PC communication, CANBUS, PROFIBUS etc. (see Accessories)
