TENTROL is a tape tension control kit which is active in the Record and Reproduce modes of a tape recorder.
TENTROL may be used to control either the holdback or the takeup tension (or both), depending upon whether it is installed on the existing supply or takeup motors.
TENTROL does not disturb the tape path, utilizing instead a tachometer that is attached to the reel motor.
The Model 400-01 and 400-02 kits will control holdback tension on Ampex Models 440C and 440C-8 respectively.
