PCB-Based REELEX Control System

The Future of REELEX Controls is Here.

The REELEX G3 Control System is an entirely new control system which pairs a proprietary custom-designed PCB (Printed Circuit Board) with a high-definition touchscreen HMI interface.

G3 Overview

Replacing nearly all of the circuitry in the legacy “G1” REELEX machines, the G3 Winding Module circuit board 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.

G3 Upgrade for G1 Machines

Legacy G1 D-750 and D-510 machines can be field-upgraded with G3 controls via an upgrade kit.

This kit replaces the fundamental control system on G1 machines with G3 components and mounts to the existing control cabinet. This upgrade is performed by REELEX technicians and takes less than three days.


Please note that the G3 Field Upgrade is currently only available for “G1” D-510 and D-750 single-spindle machines with REELEX (Windings) built controls.
