A compact controller with advanced features – Easy to use with reliable cost-effective performance.

The Micro 1000® web guide controller delivers the highest level of web guide accuracy in the industry. It easily interfaces with all of AccuWeb’s dynamically compensated WideArray™ and standard edge detectors, AccuBeam® 3 line guide, and light- to medium-thrust linear actuators — all in one, compact enclosure.

The Micro 4000NET offers outstanding flexibility by interfacing with existing customer networks and PLCs. The result is the ability to provide unmatched accuracy, consistency and reliability. It is compatible with all of AccuWeb’s dynamically compensated WideArray™ and standard edge detectors, AccuBeam® 3 line guide, and all linear actuators — all in one enclosure.

Digital Speed and Accuracy — Automatically calibrates the web guide system for environmental changes, web process contaminents, and web edge changes every 4 milliseconds.

Operator Friendly — Intuitive touch pad interface with LED indicators. Setup parameters are located inside the controller, safe from inadvertent adjustments.

No Setup Downtime — The system performs continuous automatic calibration of edge detectors through AccuWeb’s exclusive dynamic compensation process.

Network Friendly — An optional discrete PLC I/O (Performance Logic Controller Input/Output) board allows remote control of the Micro 1000.

Easy Installation — All components are contained within this single enclosure, reducing interconnections and easily installs on web guide equipment next to the web guide frame.

Ratings — Enclosure is rated IP65 for protection from harsh environments, and designed to UL, EUL, CUL, CE and FCC codes.

Applications — Linear actuators can be applied to guide frames (both positive displacement guides and steering roll guides), unwind stands, winders, rewinders, coilers and uncoilers.
