Tension and Torque Controls

Choose Versatec for Unwind and Rewind Ultrasonic, Dancer, Free Loop or Ranger Applications. Spyder Plus when cost and space are your primary concerns. And Cygnus when you want the industry's most advanced features in an easy to use package.

Products Include:

  • Cygnus Tension ControlMAGPOWR Cygnus Tension Control

    A variety of advanced yet easy-to-use features are apparent immediately to operators using MAGPOWR’s compact, powerful Cygnus® Tension Controls.

  • Spyder Plus Tension ControlMAGPOWR Spyder Plus Tension Control

    Designed for precise tension control, MAGPOWR’s cost-effective Spyder Tension Control is capable of controlling web tension in closed-loop, open-loop, unwind, rewind, point-to-point or dancer applications.

  • Versatec Tension ControlMAGPOWR VERSATEC Tension Control

    MAGPOWR’s VERSATEC Versatile Tension Control provides true ease of use and extreme flexibility with its wide range of functions and operating modes.

  • US-2 Ultrasonic SensorMAGPOWR Ultrasonic Sensor

    Scrap is essentially waste, and waste represents reduced profits. An effective way to reduce scrap and therefore maximize profits is by increasing the accuracy and control of the web.

  • IPT-E Current to Pressure TransducerMAGPOWR IPT-E Current to Pressure Transducer

    MAGPOWR’s IPT-E Current to Pressure Transducer provides two benefits right out of the box: its single manifold design facilitates its small size, and the unit requires absolutely no calibration, so it’s ready-to-use immediately.

  • IPT Current to Pressure TransducerMAGPOWR IPT Current to Pressure Transducer
  • IP-80 Current to Pressure TransducerMAGPOWR IP-80 Current to Pressure Transducer

    Versatility, accuracy, durability and ease of use. These are the things you look for in a current-to-pressure transducer, and that’s exactly what you get in the MAGPOWR IP-80.

  • DFCA and DFC90 Dancer Follower Arm ControlMAGPOWR Dancer / Follower Arm Control

    Need control of a dancer, follower arm or both? No problem, as MAGPOWR’s DFC-90 and DFC-A low-cost tension controls can handle either operation mode.

  • DFP-2 Dancer / Follower Arm Position SensorMAGPOWR Follower Arm Sensor Positioners

    The goal in dancer/follower arm applications is to utilize the dancer arm for increased accuracy in tension control, eliminating dependence on an operator and achieve automatic control of the braking torque on the unwind roll — resulting in constant web tension.

  • PS-24 and PS-90 Power Supply UnitsMAGPOWR 24 or 90 VDC Power Supply for Clutches and Brakes

    Complete control is the goal of any operation utilizing brakes and clutches. MAGPOWR’s PS-24 & PS-90 Power Supplies provide a small amount of reverse current circuitry as a standard feature to minimize the drag torque of a clutch/brake, allowing greater controllability in the lowest torque range.

  • TC-5 and TC-5P Current Regulated Power SupplyMAGPOWR 90 VDC Power Supply for Clutches and Brakes

    Dependable current-regulated power supplies are imperative for the proper operation of all magnetic particle clutches and brakes, and MAGPOWR’s are no different. The MAGPOWR TC-5 is a solid state current regulated 90 VDC power supply.

  • PA-90 and PA-2 Power AmplifiersMAGPOWR Power Amplifiers
  • Digital Tension Meter (DTM)MAGPOWR Digital Tension Meter

    A low-cost way to monitor tension output, the Digital Tension Meter (DTM) is perfect for applications where access to tension control parameters is not required. Operators can mount a control away from the web to get feedback on current web tension via a backlit display and illuminated digits.

  • UL and CE Approved

    We value your safety and want to help you maintain process lines of the highest standards. That's why we go the extra step to ensure that many of our products are UL approved and CE certified.
