Fibrevision CapTex

Capacitive Sensors

CapTex yarn break sensors work on the principal of capacitive measurement, whereby the running yarn results in a change in capacitance of an electrical field.

Advantages of CapTex sensors are:

  • Suitable for all types of yarn
  • Suitable for most processes
  • Suitable for most yarn counts
  • Insensitive to dust
  • Operates at speeds > 50/m/m
  • Has a fast reaction time (~ 100msec)
  • Suitable for rough environments
  • Low power consumption (~ 10mA)
