    3 Weeks Lead Time
Highly Accurate Sensors Can Also Be Adaptive

Eliminate calibration. These sensors learn and adapt on the fly!

Roll-2-Roll Sensors can measure edge position, contrast position, position of a line on the web, web width, count and monitor threads of any material without the need for any setup or calibration. The sensing principle relies on light scattering and spatial filtering properties of fiber optics to accurately determine the web position. The web position sensor is essentially an affordable vision based sensing system different web sensing applications.

The patented fiber optic sensing principle enables the plug-and-play sensor technology. The sensor technology adjusts automatically to the physical characteristics of the material and provides an accurate position measurement. Web Position Sensor system is an affordable vision-like sensing system which can be used for edge, line, contrast, width, diameter, marking detection, and other applications, without the hassles of traditional vision systems.
