The first D-1500 dual-spindle REELEX machine featuring new PCB-based G3 controls has shipped. This new control system features the G3 Winding Module circuit board, which combines encoder monitoring, processing, calculations, I/O and interfacing onto a single integrated unit. These components interact with existing I/O boards to control machine functions.
Interfacing with the Winding Module is a high-definition Red Lion Graphite 12-inch HMI running proprietary REELEX software. This software brings REELEX equipment well into the 21st century, with real-time troubleshooting, multi-language support, recipe functions, networking functionality and more.
Legacy REELEX machines can be upgraded in the field with G3 controls, effectively bringing older equipment to modern standards.
