The sensor SE-44 uses ultrasonic sound to detect the web edge. Its light weight, small size, and insensitivity to ambient light make it ideal for most web guiding applications.
The SE-44 ultrasonic sensor measures the lateral position of the guided material. The sensor field of view (proportional band) is 10 mm, allowing significant guide point adjustment.
The SE-44 is often used in pairs for center guiding when web width variations are limited. The SE-44 sensor can be used to control most opaque materials as well as transparent ones.
Fife offers a wide variety of sensor mountings and positioning assemblies for use with the SE-44 ultrasonic sensor. Depending on the application, standard or custom designed mounting brackets can be provided to ensure quick and easy installations.
The SE-44 can be used with any of our applicable guiding systems or as a retrofit/upgrade for existing systems.
The SE-44 can be connected to all available Fife web guide controllers.
