Designed for Unwind Tension Zones utilizing Dancer Arm and Load Cell Feedback
Receive direct tension feedback from the material you are running, via load cells, for exact tension control while capitalizing on all the benefits of your dancer. The Z4-UI combines the best of both technologies.
Designed Specifically for Dancers
The Z4-UI is designed specifically for the unique variables found in dancer applications and dancer control for higher quality performance.
7” HD Interactive Display Screen
A high definition, crystal clear, and easy to navigate HMI blends form and function into one convenient package
Continuously stores the last 7 days of process run data to get a more detailed look of your production. See machine downtime, run lengths, speeds, and tension, and more. Take your data with you by plugging in a USB thumbdrive.
Remote Installation and Multiple Mounting Options
The Z4-UI remote version (Z4-UI-R) allows you to install the circuit board and the HMI in separate locations, while the enclosure version (Z4-UI-E) can be installed as either a panel or surface mount.
EtherNet/IP™ (ODVA Certified) Communication Option
24V Version Available
Compatible with Pneumatic or Electric Brakes and Clutches
Compatible with Drives
User Defined Units and Scale
Customize the interface, units, and scale to meet your specific requirements.
Analog & Digital Hybrid Tension Controller
The speed of analog combined with the functionality of digital; making tension corrections faster than any other controller. Simple to Program, Highly Responsive!
Automated Shaft Fill
When a shaft fill core is used the Z4 can activate the air shaft to lock cores into place preventing the slightest slip.
Set It & Forget It Technology
With a few simple button presses your machine operates at maximum efficiency without constant monitoring.

Minimizes tension upsets during start up.
Prevents web tension from dropping during rapid deceleration.
Maintains tension on materials during flying splice, resulting in successful splices without tension changes.
Web Break Detection
Programmable alarms or stop machine should a break occur, reducing waste and productivity loss.
Remotely input or adjust tension setpoint
Ensures uniform stability from full roll all the way down to the core
Programmable Diameter Alarm
Alerts operator or stops machine if certain parameters (that you set) in your process are reached.
Allows you run multiple types of materials and tensions on one machine, gain greater control at lower torque ranges, run high mass rolls at lighter tensions, and run low torque and tension applications that require high torque to stop. Learn More
