EYE for carpet tufting uses the EYE Compact and EYE Compact II yarn sensors. These robust sensors are constructed in metal housings and can easily be mounted and connected with modular connectors. Up to 96 sensors can be connected to the Master control unit, and with a slave unit 96 more sensors can be connected. Because of this, the EYE Compact system can meet most machine configurations.
In the Operator terminal different sensor parameters can be set for groups of yarns with automatic addressing of all the system parts. All events are logged in real time which can be useful for statistics and diagnostics. This information can then be distributed to a central database through the ethernet connection on the Master control unit.
The EYE Analyzer is a powerful PC software package developed by Eltex to be used for collecting data from one or more Eltex Yarn Expert (EYE) yarn break detection systems. The data is compiled into various statistics displayed in graphs to be conveniently exported to excel or printed to PDF.
EYE Analyzer can also be configured to deliver its data directly into an existing plant monitoring software system. Once this software is put to work the operator soon finds out what a useful tool it is for locating weak points in the process and compiling statistics that can be used for evaluation at a later point. The collected statistics can also be very useful when calculating cost efficiency. It can be used when tufting carpets or artificial grass, on warping machines, and other applications.
