The TA500 EIP Tension Amplifier is a compact, single-channel tension transducer interface with Ethernet connectivity. 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 TA500 simple, fast and reliable. Powered by 24 VDC, the amplifier boosts a millivolt-level tension signal from tension transducers (load cells) and provides simultaneous Ethernet, 0-10 VDC and 4-20 mA connectivity to interface with 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 TA500 amplifier a natural choice for the OEM or end user seeking value in web tension monitoring or control applications.
