Dover Flexo Electronics (DFE) (Booth 1775) is presenting an active demonstration of the communications options of the SteadyWeb5 tension controller. The controller maintains set tension on a web in any zone to improve converting and printing process consistency.
In the interactive demo the SteadyWeb5 controller will take a tension input signal from a Tension Roll transducer on display. The controller’s web-server option allows Ethernet communication for setup and control via connected PC or remotely from a wi-fi-enabled smart device.
Visitors will be able read tension output, adjust the setpoint and make other simple controller setup and configuration changes directly on the controller’s front panel or remotely through their smartphones. DFE’s booth staff will walk attendees through the demonstration.
The SteadyWeb5’s communication options:
- Serial Communication - Modbus RTU or HCI available as RS232 or RS485 interfaces
- Ethernet - 10/100 Base-T Ethernet card with RJ45 Jack for remote web access
