TI17C TrueTension™ Load Cell Amplifier / Signal Conditioner

A versatile, single-channel tension transducer interface for monitoring tension in any zone on web or filament processing machinery.

Product Status: Discontinued
End Date: December 31, 2021
Recommended Replacement:

The TI17C TrueTension™ amplifiers are devices that power a tension transducer (or a pair of shaft-end mounted transducers) installed in a web or filament path.  The transducer return signal is scaled to provide a proportional, isolated 0-10 VDC or 4-20 mA output to a PLC, drive or display meter.

The base unit for the TI17C is a 3.2" x 5.5" (8.2cm x 14cm) circuit card with no enclosure. This is available in a horizontal mounting (H) configuration including mounting hardware. The vertical (V) configuration includes the card in a semi-enclosed mounting bracket available with or without a DIN-rail clip. An optional cover is available in the V configuration to provide a complete enclosure.

The TI17C operates on 115 VAC 60Hz (230 VAC 50Hz optional). The TI17C is CE-marked in its vertical (V) configuration with a cover and has been thoroughly tested to meet European low voltage and EMC directives.

The TI17C is UL-listed in the USA and Canada. Canadian UL-listing requires full enclosure versions (i.e. with covers).

• Improves machine operation and productivity by making it easier to run proper tension
• Low-cost component as part of a complete tension measurement or control system
• Modular package for versatile, flexible mounting and setup
• Backward compatible – dimensional footprint and pin-out connections match those of previous TI17B and TI18B tension amplifier designs

• 115V/230 VAC 50/60Hz power input
Quik-Cal™ push-button zero and calibration
• Auto Zero on power up
• 0-10 VDC or 4-20 mA isolated outputs
• 0-1 mA output for a tension meter
• CE-marked
• Meter damping adjustment minimizes meter fluctuation when used with optional tension meter
• Dual Calibration provides the ability to toggle two transducer calibration ranges
