RTM MP: Bi-directional signal transmission in rotating machinery.Parallel transmission of encoder signals for tension measurement and control.
The RTM MP System with its bi-directional signal transmissions supports tension measurement & data exchange with master controller. The RTM MP System transmits both analog and digital signals & can submit up to 2 independent encoder signals (special 4 signal upon request) and can be used in a wide range of applications in the Wire & Cable industry such as:
Measurement and control of wire tension
Control of take-up traverse Monitoring of cradle locks
Monitoring of bearing temperatures
Monitoring of spool diameter
Reliable radio-based signal transmission
Simple system concept, integrated solution
Signal transmission w/o slip-rings, maintenance-free, highly reliable
Easy installation and start-up
Applications with limited installation space possible, e.g. Bekaert bow twisters
Secure data link up to 30 m, no slip rings necessary
RTM X42 Systems: Modular wire tension measurement for tubular and cage type stranders
The material tension and controlof single wires or strands during the production of wires and ropes has major impacst on process safety and product quality. FMS has developed the RTM X42 System for this demanding application.
The sensors provide precise measurement of the wire tension and their special design compensate for the impact of centrifugal forces on the measurement results.
The modular & compact design of the components allows them to fit into the limited installation space of tubular and cage type stranders.
The RTM X42 System offers unmatched functionality for both cable manufacturers and OEMs to maximize their competitive advantage. The basic function of simple wire tension measurement can be gradually extended with comprehensive monitoring and documentation as well as with tension control capabilities with a closed-loop control.
Features and advantages:
Material tension measurement in single wires or strands -> Determine the most important quality and process parameter
Modbus interface as standard -> Compatible with almost any master controller via anybus gateway (see RTM X42 Accessories)
1-42 single strands on a single RTM X42 System, multiple systems can operate in parallel -> Modular adaptable to various plant sizes
Reliable radio transmission -> No wear and minimum maintenance, no additional wiring and no slip-rings required
Comprehensive range of accessories -> Monitoring & Control Software/fully automated brake control
RTM X42.CCC Control Center – System extension for visualization of tension data
The RTM X42.CC Control Center offers perfect tools for data visualization and storage as well as management of production parameters and complements the RTM X42 System in regards of quality and process control. The embedded industrial PC and the custom made Monitoring & Control Software offer best access to the relevant parameters to the operator and the quality management.
The RTM X42.CC Control Center is a basic requirement to operate the RTM X42.BC Brake Control.
Clear visualization of the measured results
Store and retrieve collected data
Integrated solution with easy control
Save parameter settings
Wide range of production data for analysis
Process data under control
Quality documentation (certificates) for your customers
Ease of operation
Quick parameter recall
Data can be use to monitor plant performance and as a basis for process improvements
RTM X42.BC Brake Control – System extension for continuous tension control
This extension will expand the functions of the RTM X42 System from pure tension monitoring and analyzing to a closed-loop tension control system. The control values are calculated in the RTM X42.CC Control Center and wirelessly transmitted to the individual brake actuators which convert the signals and provide constant wire tension in a continuous process removing need to stop the machine for manual brake adjustment.
For belt and rope type friction brakes
Simple concept, maintenance-free, robust
Proven battery technology
Fully automated control of the pay-off brakes
Continuous production with highest quality
Easy to retrofit, high reliability
Ease of operation, long lifetime, highest efficiency
