Electronic Dancer Arm Position Controller

shown with optional stand
  No Potentiometer to wear out
No Operator Adjustments
Integrator for constant loop size
Stand Mounted super dancer
SUPER DANCER incorporates state of the art electronic circuitry which eliminates the use of a typical potentiometer. Most dancer arm applications use potentiometers which have a very short life span and cause very expensive down time. By eliminating the potentiometer there is virtually no physical wear and tear eliminating down time.
SUPER DANCER state of the art electronic circuitry allows easy adjustments of your loops zero to full speed set points. There is no need for repositioning the potentiometer to allow for a different loop height or changing dancer arm gears for a different RPM /inch speed range. These adjustments may be made while equipment is still in operation which eliminates even more costly down time!
SUPER DANCER state of the art electronic circuitry incorporates PID output functions as a standard feature. The PID feature automatically integrates to achieve minimum loop height changes and is a must for fast changing line speeds such as Roll Forming applications and high speed feeding applications!
SUPER DANCER can be applied in straightener, rewind or unwind applications, etc.. and supplies an isolated analog dc voltage to control virtually any DC or AC drive control.

Now available in Shaft version to adapt to your existing dancer linkage

Basic unit is an open chassis type with the analog prox included.
