Optical Sensors

OptoTex yarn break sensors work on the principal of an optical measurement whereby the yarn presence is identified either by disturbance of the shadow created in a Transmissive sensor, or by variation in the reflected light in a reflective sensor.

Advantages of OptoTex sensors are:

  • Can be used on all types of yarn
  • Suitable for nearly all processes
  • Suitable for all yarn counts
  • The transmits sensor is not sensitive to yarn colour
  • The reflective sensor is particularly suitable for traversing yarns
  • Not sensitive to spin finish oil
  • Operates at wide range of yarn speeds from <50m/min.
  • Insensitive to electrostatic influence
  • Suitable for all environments
