Web Guiding Systems

Micro 4000® Net

In the past, wiring for multiple web guides consisted of using long, multi-conductor cables to connect the edge detector and linear actuators to the web guide control enclosure. Installing these long cables and conduit was costly and labor intensive.

Micro 4000 NET uses distributed control technology to eliminate the installation hassles of long cable runs, expensive conduit and tedious wiring checkouts. Through the use of fieldbus communications via a small shielded cable, Micro 4000 NET can send and receive web guide commands from a customer PLC or PC. A compact Micro 4000 NET enclosure is mounted at each of the web guide locations and networked with one simple connection. This set-up uses shorter cables for edge detectors and linear actuator hook ups.

  • Compatible with CANopen™, ControlNet™, DeviceNet™, Interbus and Profibus®-DP protocols, Micro 4000 NET allows instant access to all web guide functions (static centerline, oscillation, remote guide point adjust, manual mode, servo-center and automatic) and feedback ( edge detector error, actuator position, at in or out end-of-travel limit, at servo-center and in automatic mode).
