Winding Machine-Rim Drive AC Inverter

Part Number:W1/AC

The W1/AC Winding/Measuring machine is a rim-drive winding machine similar to the W1 machine but with a more powerful 1.5kw brake motor with inverter speed control and, more importantly, is equipped with the more sophisticated AC Inverter/electronic control and measuring system as exists on the larger RD/AC1300 (1 Tonne) and RDW1/AC (2 Tonne) winding machines.

This provides excellent cable handling control control particularly useful for handling fibre-optic cable with auto ramp-up/ramp-down speeds cause less stress on cables.

The (electric) brake motor arrests drum over run at the end of the count.
A programmable metric electronic counter is fitted, which also allows for the winder to be recalibrated.
A slow down speed operates 10 metres before the end of a preset cable length (adjustable)
The unit also features automatic switch-off of the winder at the end of a preset cable length.
The W1/AC comes equipped with wheels for easy relocation around the factory/warehouse floor.

Drum inching can be achieved by using the "Forward/Reverse" jog button.
A "Dead-Man" switch is built into the handgrip of the meterhead for operator safety.

The inverter has 2 speed ranges:
Setting 1 for drums 500mm diameter and larger.
Setting 2 for drums smaller than 500mm diameter.

Both speed ranges are fully variable with the speed control knob.
