Laser Pick/Course Counter  Model 7762A
Laser Pick/Course Counter Model 7762A
Digital Indicator

The Laser Pick/Course Counter Model 7762A utilizes advanced laser optics to precisely measure the linear density of moving fabric in terms of pick or course counts. Its features include...

  • Big figure digital display of pick or course count to 0.1 counts per inch or centimeter precision with simple keyboard entry of set point and limits for high and low LED alarm indication.
  • Water-tight, durable enclosure designed to withstand the harshest of mill environments.
  • Laser Sensor Type 6307A is hermetically sealed and nitrogen gas filled to maintain long-term performance of internal components.
  • High speed digital signal processing analyzes each thread used the the measurement calculation. The laser beam angle is continously checked for optimum position to maintain accuracy.
  • Utilizes Type R-90-200 surface-driven speed/length transducers with cast, stainless steel wheels to maintain accuracy for long-term use in contact with abrasive materials and in applications with significant temperature shifts.
  • Optionally use Type FM-90-200 shaft-driven speed/length transducers for applications in which material contact is not feasable. Simply enter a ratio easily calculated from roll diameter and sprocket sizes.
  • Industry standard, scalable 4-20mA outputs or pick/course count and speed values, allowing the unit to be easily integrated into higher level control or monitoring systems. Optionally, the current set point value can be substituted for the speed output so that the higher level system can compare actual versus target values.
