Description

Our Optical Traverse Control OTC unit consists of a stand with optical sensors. Vertical polarized light beams detect when the cable deviates from the straight cable center line and give a traverse correction signal to the pay-off. The control unit can be easily adjusted for different cable diameters. Maintaining a straight cable center line provides advantages of reduced line lengths and more careful cable handling. The unit is designed to work with a PLC controlled pay-off.

Technical characteristics

Line speed, max. 200 m/min
Cable diameter, min. 3.5 mm
Cable diameter, max. 180 mm

Exact values depend on the assembly.

Options

  • Sideways movement
