Voith introduces SensoTension LC

Voith launched a new sensor that measures and controls the tension of wires and press felts with the SensoTension LC. The sensors of the new system are suitable for use in the former, press and dryer sections of paper, board and tissue machines.

The SensoTension LC’s special features include its dual-channel design and signal filtering and amplification integrated into the sensor. The dual-channel system provides redundancy and constant wire and press felt tension, enabling high reliability in paper manufacture. Unlike conventional systems, the signal filtering and amplification are integrated into the sensor ensuring high measuring accuracy and preventing transmission errors.

SensoTension LC is suitable for use at temperatures of up to 120°C and is offered in a rugged stainless steel design. The new SensoTension LC measuring and control system is designed for use with the Voith tensioning systems SensoTension P for the press and SensoTension DE for the dryer section, but can also be combined with wire tensioning systems from other manufacturers.
