EtherNet/IP™ Communications
Z4 Tension Controllers

Montalvo’s line of Z4 Tension Controllers is designed for Unwind, Intermediate/Nip, and Rewind applications utilizing load cells, a dancer, or both. The Z4 has a full range of features and functions specific to the unique variables found in each tension zone like soft-start for unwinds, and taper for rewinds, to ensure the highest quality results from start to finish, and more.
Available as a communication option for Z4 Tension Controllers, or as an upgrade for existing Z4’s in the field, EtherNet/IP allows you to easily interface Z4 Controllers with an existing HMI, allow management to record, and store information about the condition of the machine, and reduce, or eliminate the need for running cables/wires for installation.
ODVA EtherNet/IP™ Features Include:
  • Easy to understand, implement, manage, and maintain
  • Faster communication between Z4’s and other networked devices
  • Easily interface with existing HMI
  • Parameters made available for customized tracking and logging
  • Easily integrates into existing Ethernet system
  • Provides extensive topological flexibility for network installation
Visit any of the  Z4 Tension Controller Product Pages for more information, manuals, datasheets, and more.
