HEIDENHEIM, Germany, Dec 11, 2014 (Press Release) -
With the SensoTension LC Voith has launched a new sensor on the market that measures and controls the tension of wires and press felts precisely, safely and reliably. The sensors of the new system are suitable for use in the former, press and dryer sections of paper, board and tissue machines.
The SensoTension LC's special features include its dual-channel design and signal filtering and amplification integrated into the sensor. The dualchannel system sets the product apart from conventional sensor systems.
Thanks to the redundancy provided it ensures constant wire and press felt tension and therefore also ensures the maximum possible reliability in paper manufacture. Unlike conventional systems, the signal filtering and amplification are integrated into the sensor, ensuring high measuring accuracy and preventing transmission errors.
SensoTension LC is suitable for use at temperatures of up to 120°C and is offered in a rugged stainless steel design. The new SensoTension LC measuring and control system is designed for use with the Voith tensioning systems SensoTension P for the press and SensoTension DE for the dryer section, but can also be combined with wire tensioning systems from other manufacturers.
