“The Eltex EYE is a flexible system designed for

yarn break detection on textile machines.”

EYE - Eltex Yarn Expert

Yarn Break Detection System.

• Depending on the number of ends there is sometimes a need for a slave unit in combination with the EYE Master Control unit. When used on creels with EYE Multi eyelet sensors only, up to 72 sensors can be used on each control unit. When using single sensors up to 96 sensors can be used on each control unit.

EYE System for warping creels



Operator Terminal

The touch screen operator terminal has a very user friendly interface. The number of yarns in operation are clearly displayed. The yarn tension value from a particular sensor can be displayed.

Master Control Unit

The master control unit communicates with the sensors and the operator terminal. It processes all the data and gives stop and lamp indication signals when the tension in any yarn position is outside the set limits.

Yarn break sensors

The sensors use the well proven piezoelectric principle. They are robust and can work with a wide range of yarns and are not influenced by dust, dirt, humidity or ambient light. The sensors are available with 1, 8, 10 or 12 eyelets.

Further advantages:

• The stop position is shown both on the terminal and on the sensor
• Ability to show user defined yarn position ID at yarn fault
• The stop function can be set for immediate stop or after a certain number of missing yarns
• Parameters can be set for different yarn groups and can also automatically change depending on machine speed
• Automatic addressing of all the system parts
• Easy to change system configuration
• Simple connections with modular connectors
• Robust sensors in metal housings
• CAN Bus, Ethernet or Modbus (available for OEM interface)
• Software updates can be quickly and easily installed
