WideArray(TM) Edge Detectors Feature Advanced Technology
WideArray edge detectors have continued to be enhanced with advanced technology.
Madison, Wis. – WideArray™ Edge Detectors from AccuWeb were introduced over fifteen years ago with its patented technology allowing for fully compensated, self-adjusting edge detection that could overcome ambient dust, changes in temperature and humidity, web flutter, passline variances, and other environmental factors. Since then, WideArray technology has evolved with even more advanced capabilities. Both ultrasonic and infrared models have been designed in order to accurately detect any web material regardless of opacity. Intrinsically safe models are available for use in Class 1, Division 1 Group CD hazardous environments. Most recently, a single WideArray edge detector can now centerline guide narrow webs up to 18 inches when integrated with AccuWeb's new EVO 150™ controller with DualEdge technology. WideArray edge detectors are available with detection ranges from 1.2 inches (30mm) to 18.4 inches (467mm).
