PTS25 line sensor

PTS25 line sensor

Re’s new line sensor PTS25 has been designed to identify the position of solid lines, broken lines, printed edges, web edges and patterns of any kind on a moving web even at the highest web speeds; made possible by its 1KHz regulation speed. The sensor’s high precision and reliability to identify color differences ensure that the web stays on the right path, guaranteeing dependable production and reduced waste.

The PTS25 has been designed to optimize the operator experience by using a simple and user-friendly interface, text messages and even assisted calibration.

The assisted calibration is an important plus of the sensor; during this operation the PTS25 faithfully reproduces the whole real image, not only the line, and automatically recommends lines or patterns to follow, showing the reliability percentage of each one. Moreover, the PTS25 is able to select the best reading point inside the viewing area even in extremely adverse conditions without manually relocating the sensor. Finally, the line sensor is equipped with a red laser track to simplify its positioning according to the reference line to follow.

We also paid particular attention to the mechanical installation of the sensor: thanks to an articulating bracket and the ability to locate the sensor up to 60mm from the web, without losing focus on the image, the PTS25 doesn’t have to be moved or removed during web positioning.

The PTS25 is equipped with a 5” color touch screen display that ensures dependable reproduction of the real image. Two high-power LED lights produce true white light to ensure the best performance even in bad lighting conditions. The sensor is provided with a viewing area of 25x16 mm and with digital and analog inputs and outputs.
