Compact yet powerful, the Cygnus® is a dramatically different tension control with advanced features that are easy to use.
Operators can easily navigate through advanced tension control functions and codes using on-screen prompts displayed in full text, making the setup process faster. Web tension is maintained or adjusted using multifunction "smart keys", similar to those used in ATM's, and a large backlit display for easy viewing.
The standard DIN panel mount Cygnus saves valuable panel space with it's compact packaging. At less than four inches in depth, Cygnus door mount applications leave plenty of space to mount components on the panel immediately underneath. For retrofit applications there is an IP65 enclosed version allowing for convenient mounting to the machine frame or wall.
|"The Cygnus tension control system has decreased our waste from 15% to just over 3.5%. Considering most of our jobs are short runs this is nice savings." |

Converters and printers can dramatically reduce setup time and improve consistency with powerful features like automatic tuning and out of round roll compensation (previously only possible with a dancer control). Complex tension settings can be input quickly with full text prompts as opposed to more complicated input procedures of the past.
The operator is quickly guided through the setup process and fine tune adjustments, without extensive training or the need of constantly referencing a separate manual.
Additional General Specifications:
PS-90 and PS-24 power amplifiers may be used to operate 90 or 24 VDC magnetic particle clutches and brakes.
