Filament Detection Sensors (FD3) are especially designed to detect radial- as well as edge filaments on narrow textile up to 55 mm width. It is especially designed to meet the high industrial standards of seat belt / automotive industry.
FD3 can be used for production speeds up to 120 meter per minute. FD3+enc is equipped with an encoder and used for production lines with variable speed and stop. Standard FD3 is used for constant speed.
FD3 has 2 digital outputs; one for large and one for small defects. With the FD software, sensitivity adjustments can be made. The digital outputs are directly available for your PLC.
One bracket is used to detect broken filaments on the top side of the fabric. The second bracket is used for the bottom side of the narrow fabric.
