FA-II Flange Detection System Features & Benefits

FA-II Flange Detection System Features & Benefits

When the laser sensor detects the edge of the spool flange, a signal is sent to a pneumatic cylinder which actuates the reversal mechanism. A manual is included with the system.

System Features

  • Laser sensor with 3.5 M connecting cable
  • Laser sensor holder (mounts to traverse unit)
  • Reference point sensor with 2 M connecting cable
  • Reference point sensor holder
  • Switch box with controller, display, controls

Technical Specifications

  • Supply voltage: 24VDC, 2 A
  • Flange detecting sensor: Laser class II acc. to IEC 60825-1
  • Care should be taken to assure that spool flanges are not bent or damaged
  • Laser sensor should be protected from particulate contaminants (dust, metal particles, wood chips, etc.).
  • Accommodates materials with round cross-sections
  • Material diameter: 0.1 – 2.0 mm (.004 – .079 in.)
  • Spool flange diameter: up to 220 mm (8-43/64 in.)
  • Will handle spools with straight or tapered flanges (angle of up to 40 degrees)
