At the Index 2021 from October 19-22 in Geneva/Switzerland, Erhardt+Leimer will present its comprehensive networking concept EL.NET, with many new products and features. The DRB pivoting frame series offers all the benefits of networking, from brushless small web guiders through to large pivoting frame systems. All the components of the DRB series are networked using Ethernet and form their own network.
Besides the rapid and transparent data exchange within the system, this data is now available for Industry 4.0 applications. In principle, Erhardt+Leimer GmbH (E+L), Stadtbergen/Germany, has let itself be guided by the open architecture and offers this benefit irrespective of the hardware and software.
The networking concept is rounded off with the FR 61 infrared wide band sensor, which is available with a fork length of up to 480 mm and allows itself to be equally seamlessly integrated into the described system architecture.
The PA 62 web tension measuring amplifier and the DC 62 web tension controller can of course be networked with the machine in the same way, thus closing the circle of complete networking. The benefits for the customer: a 2-channel measuring amplifier, LCD display for displaying the actual web tension value, a trend curve or the individual values for the left and right side of the web. Alarm functions on exceeding limit values, which can be configured individually, are also included.
