The SP-13 and SM-1760 are feeler-palm pneumatic sensors that have an extended arm, which physically contacts the edge of the web. The SM-1760 is used to accurately guide many types of slow-moving webs. The SP-13 is a more rugged version of the SM-1760. It features a ceramic pad attached to the feeler palm, and is commonly used with abrasive webs. Optional feeler-palm styles and configurations are available to match your material and installation requirements.
Designed for use with Fife’s pneumohydraulic power units and control systems, these sensors are ruggedly built to handle the most physically demanding applications. Both the SP-13 and SM-1760 have a feeler palm stroke of approximately ±0.3” (7.6 mm), which is extended about 2.0” (52 mm) from the sensor body. (This dimension will vary depending upon the actual feeler palm selected for your application.)
