TCS Series Analog/Manual Controls

The TCS-200 is a manual analog control for the Electro Disc Tensioning Brake. The control is a constant-current output type that uses a front panel or remote potentiometer to adjust the output. The TCS-200-1/-1H is a manual analog control for any 24 VDC tension brake. It can also accept a 0-10 VDC or 4-20mA analog input for adjusting the output.

Input: 115/230 VAC, 50/60 Hz
Output: 0-24 VDC adjustable, 5.8 amps continuous
Torque adjust, brake on/off, run switch
Remote torque adjust, roll follower, analog voltage or current option

MCS-204 Analog Tension Control

MCS-204clipThe MCS-204 is a solid-state control designed for manual or analog input to operate one or two 24 VDC tension brakes. It is designed for use with the MCS-166 power supply.

Input 24–28 VDC @ 3 amps
Operates from torque adjust controlknob on front, remote potentiometer, roll follower, or current loop
Panel mount with exposed wiring or wall/shelf mount enclosure with conduit entrance.

TCS-220 Analog Tension Control

TCS-220_aclipThe TCS-220 operates an Electro Disc or other electromagnetic tension brake from an analog input (customer supplied) or the manual setting of the “Torque Adjust” dial on the control face.

Input: 48 VDC. 1.6 amps continuous, 6 amps intermittent. Analog inputs from roll follower or current loop.
Output per magnet is 0–270 mA running, 270–500 mA stopping
Cabinet mounting enclosure with exposed wiring or wall/shelf mounting enclosure with conduit entrance.

MCS 208 Analog Tension Control

MCS-208-GThe MCS-208 operates pneumatic tension brakes through an E to P transducer, which varies air pressure accordingly. Control output is based on an analog input (customer supplied) or the manual setting of the “Torque Adjust” dial on the control face.

Input: 26 VDC. Analog inputs from roll follower or current loop
Output: 1–9 VDC; 1–5 mA, 4–20 mA, or 10–50 mA, depending on transducer needs
Cabinet mounting enclosure with exposed wiring or wall/shelf mounting enclosure with conduit entrance.

TCS-320 Analog Splicer Control

TCS-320-clipThe TCS-320 is a solid state splicer control that operates two Electro Disc or other electromagnetic tension brakes, one brake controlling and one brake holding, or two tension brakes operating simultaneously. It can also be used as a dual brake control operating up to 24 MTB brake magnets.

Input: 48 VDC, 3.2 amps continuous,
12 amps intermittent
Output per magnet is 0–270 mA running, 270–500 mA stopping, 9–90 mA holding
Available as open frame or with NEMA 4 enclosure
