REQUIRED INFORMATION TO SIZE A SYSTEM

In order to select the correct size brake and transmission, MBS needs to know the following:

  1. The maximum tension required for the media

  2. The minimum tension required for the media

  3. The maximum linear speed of the media

  4. The starting diameter of the spool

  5. The core diameter of the spool

 

The controller and brakes are standard components. However, each system is sized according to customer requirements.  Based on the answers to the questions above, the brake, transmission, load cell size, and scale factors are usually selected by engineers from MBS.
