Benick's New Dual Motor
Ease of Operation
The Two Motor Drive system is comprised of two new ac motors, a
Drive control cabinet and an operator station.
The operator station will contain an "EZ Touch" Touch screen
operator interface terminal, and traditional pushbutton and
potentiometer operator controls. The operator terminal will
provide a data entry point for the operator to input material and
machine parameters for automated tension control and mandrel
slowdown as roll diameter builds. This feature will provide
automated taper tension control for the rewind rolls, control the
over speed of the rewind mandrels, and will also control the
counter presets. Operator controls at the operator panel include:
Reset, Start, Stop, Jog, Run speed, Jog speed, E stop and Edge
guide controls. The EZ touch interface terminal provides for data
input of: Core diameter, material thickness, start tension, taper
percent, mandrel over speed, counter slow down set point, and stop
set point. The terminal will indicate: length Count, machine
speed, and roll diameter.
The Drive control enclosure houses the Main drive, Rewind drive
and all associated controls, relays and associated wiring. The
drive cabinet is a Nema 12 class enclosure and has a door mounted
disconnect, input choke and dynamic braking. The control logic is
performed using a direct logic 205 PLC. Other plc systems can be
integrated at customer request. A system wiring schematic, drive
manual and counter manual are provided.
The Ac motors are US Motors Black Max vector duty ac motors.
The main drive is 7.5 HP and the rewind is 10HP. The system is
quoted for 460VAC 3 phase input but can be wired for any 3 phase
voltage at additional cost.
