Vendor Information: Coiltek’s CS-5000 puts the reliability and accuracy of ultrasonic sensing to work for the specific purpose of slack loop control. This non-contact loop control system is built into a stout steel stand so that the ultrasonic sensor is stationed directly over the stock. By sensing the height of the stock, the CS-5000 controls the replenishment of the loop by the feed device (straightener, decoiler, puller, etc.). Set up in ‘take-up’ mode, it can also control a downstream device, such as a rewind stand.
Super-easy Setup: Set up takes mere seconds with new push-button calibration. Can also be set up using a computer via USB connection to the board.
Works with many different types of materials: Metals, Plastic Extrusions, Rubber, Mesh products, Fabric, etc.
Multiple configurations available: 54, 72 and 86 inch tall stands, 11, 15, 21, 25, 30, 35, 39, 45 long booms.
Flexible: May be used very close to the sensor with control ranges from 14 inches to 200 inches.
Using free CSWin software, the control range may be as small as 1 inch and as large as 200 inches.
Useful feature set: Allows the user to tailor control to the application.
Multiple Program Set-ups: Up to eight distinct preset loop control profiles may be stored. Allows multiple tailored loop control algorithms to be instantly employed as required. Our 3CPO option allows quick operator control over three presets.
Two or more may be used in close proximity: Simple multiplex setup eliminates crosstalk.
