Maxcess has announced the release of its new MAGPOWR Spyder Plus S1 Controller and Thin Load Cell Series, a pair of products that deliver high-end features at an affordable price point and compact format to provide customers with increasingly-powerful tension control solutions.

“The Spyder Plus S1 Controller adds an input for measuring diameter, allowing for precise taper tension, advanced stop and hold functions and gain compensation, features previously limited to high-end controllers,” says Chris Harper, global product manager for MAGPOWR Tension Control.

An OEM-focused DIN-rail mounted controller offering high-end features at an affordable price point, the Spyder Plus S1 joins the Spyder Plus, Versatec and Cygnus Controllers in MAGPOWR’s lineup.

In addition to the Spyder Plus S1 release, Maxcess’ Thin Load Cell is a European-style load cell that allows for minimal machine space requirements. It is compatible with all MAGPOWR tension controllers and amplifiers.
