TA1 True Tension™ Amplifier

The TA1 True Tension™ Amplifier is a compact, single-channel tension transducer interface. It can be used with DFE tension transducers (load cells) to monitor tension in any zone of web or filament processing machinery.

DFE’s Quik-Cal™ push-button zero and calibration eliminates pot adjustments and associated drift to make calibrating the TA1 simple, fast and reliable.  Powered by 24 VDC, the amplifier boosts a millivolt-level tension signal from the tension transducer (load cell) and outputs an isolated 0-10 VDC and 4-20 mA proportional signal to a PLC, drive or display meter.

Built-in diagnostic capability quickly identifies faulty load cells, incorrect wiring, calibration issues and amplifier ADC/DAC failure.  The compact size and ease-of-installation make the TA1 amplifier a natural choice for the OEM or end user seeking value in web tension monitoring or control applications.
