Stillwater, OK, August 29th, 2020– Roll-2-Roll Technologies LLC launched at Converters Expo it's latest development, the WPS 900 sensor . This sensor provides a sensing range of 35.4" (900 mm), making it the widest sensing range in the industry.

The WPS 900 has the same versatility as the rest of the Roll-2-Roll® Sensor product line, allowing converters to use it in multiple applications on their manufacturing line.

The main features of the WPS 900 are:

  • Widest proportional band sensor in the industry
  • High resolution in a wide sensor, standard mode resolution of 0.005" (0.127 mm) with a higher resolution of .0025" (0.0635 mm) available
  • Open standard for industrial ethernet protocol through its controller unit.
  • Tracking of up to 256 edges.
  • One sensor for multiple applications: width measurement, edge, center and line guiding, flag detection, mark detection contrast position measurement with appropriate light source
  • One side sensor - compact profile for installation in spaces other sensors cannot fit.

Benefits of the WPS 900 include:

  • No repositioning of sensors. Its wide sensing range provides cost reduction with improved accuracy in comparison with systems that reposition sensors.
