There is no magical path to success, but innovation will always move us forward.

With its radio based RTM X42-series and a wide range of force measuring rollers FMS offers innovative, trend-setting systems for wire tension control in stranding machines.

The RTM X42 family has grown
Since its first introduction, some two years ago, RTM X42 has evolved from a pure tension monitoring devise to a multi-purpose control and analysis system. Its ingenious interface concept has been expanded to now provide recipe controlled operation and the processing of encoder signals.

The product family is offered in 4 different basic versions. A sensible combination of these versions is possible.

  • RTM X42.IO: With analogue outputs for controlling capability via a PLC.
  • RTM X42.PC: Tension monitoring with data processing and analysis capability.
  • RTM X42.MODBUS: Provides a flexible interfaces concept adapting to any bus system used in the machine. It allows real time control of breaks or drives.
  • RTM X42.MP: Processing of encoder signals e.g. for close loop control of drives and the control of the traverse guide in individual bobbins.

RTM X42 utilises force measurement rollers to capture the tension value of individual wires or strands, and then securely transmits this data from the rotating to the static portion of the machine. This all happens over a radio link and without troublesome slip rings.

The RTM X42 product family offers both the machine builder and cable producer a basis for efficient cost and quality management.
