The RMGZ Force Sensors for Wire Processing Applications

With the RMGZ Series of Force Measurement Rollers and the NEW 309 Series of digital electronics, FMS continues the tradition of developing innovative system solutions for Tension Monitoring in rotating applications. When used together the system provides improved product quality, increased production rates, increased operator convenience, and allows for high data connectivity.

The RMGZ Force Sensors for Wire Processing Applications are available in four configurations:

RMGZ100: These Sensors are used to measure the tension in thin ropes, cables, wires, and fibers. The product is ideal where space is limited, and is available in six Nominal Force Ratings ranging from 6N to 300N for lighter tension requirements.

RMGZ300:This dedicated measuring roller family was developed specifically for use in higher RPM rotating applications where the special design effectively compensates for centrifugal and Coriolis forces. It is available with Nominal Force Ratings ranging from 50N to 1000N.

RMGZ400: The RMGZ400 and RMGZ600 Series Sensors utilize an enhanced bending beam RMGZ600 principal. These products are available with a Nominal Force Rating ranging from 60N to 4000N for medium tension requirements.

RMGZ800: This series of Force Measurement Rollers are used to measure the tension in heavy ropes, cables, and steel wires and are available in eight Nominal Force Ratings ranging from 100N to 8000N for higher tension applications.

All variants of the RMGZ Force Measuring Rollers offer an Overload Protection Rating of 10 times the Nominal Force Rating and a 20:1 Force Measuring Range. The sensors are constructed of stainless steel, incorporate a full Wheatstone bridge strain gauge, and include an aluminium cover for corrosion resistance.

The NEW 309 Series of digital electronics are the ideal complement to the full FMS product line of Force Measuring Sensors. All units are available in Wall, DIN Rail, and Panel mount versions, and include standard features such as Ethernet interface, automatic offset compensation and calibration, and a fast 1ms cycle time. Products include the EMGZ309 Single Channel Amplifier for total tension monitoring and the CMGZ309 PID Wire Tension Controller.
