As a log moves toward the debarker, an EZ‑ARRAY receiver determines the total number of beams that are blocked. It sends an analog signal to the debarking station logic controller, which determines the diameter of the log and adjusts the log grippers and debarking blades to the log’s size.
Accurately determining the log's size provides process stability and prevents damage to the debarking machine.
EZ-ARRAY excels at high-speed, precise process monitoring and inspection, profiling and web-guiding applications with quick and simple installation. Applications include edge and center-guiding, loop tension control, hole sizing, parts counting and on-the-fly product sizing and profiling. Closely spaced infrared beams detect objects as small as 5 mm wide edge resolution is 2.5 mm. Controller functionality is built into the receiver, so basic setup requires no controller, software, or PC. IO-Link, Modbus-RTU, and RS-485 models are available.Read More
