Millmate Controller 400

Millmate Controller 400 has been designed to offer a lot of functionalities and at the same time a high degree of user-friendliness.



MC 400 covers most mechanical arrangements. This means the user only has to follow the step-by-step instructions in order to set up the controller and to have a correct strip tension calculated.

Predefined standard measurement modes
Prepared to calculate true strip tension from all mechanical arrangements that can be found in your mill and processing line
Built-in load cell tables
Filter times from 5 up to 2000 ms
Easily configurable analog/digital inputs/outputs
Feasible for tension and processing lines with interconnected multiple units
Level detector
Unit selection (N, kN, MN, kp, t, lb, T)
Self-diagnostic test system including transducer test
