Reliable weft break sensors.

Eltex of Sweden is the leading manufacturer of weft break sensors for the weaving industry and has been for more than 50 years. Our extensive experience and know-how has enabled us to perfect the function and reliability of our sensors.

Weft Break Sensors:



Eltex piezoelectric weft break sensors are optimised for best performance and designed to fit the requirement of each individual machine type. They sense the weft yarn over the entire fabric width and detects all type of weft faults resulting in a high quality fabric. By using CAN Bus the sensor has the possibility to communicate with the weaving machine to further improve the performance.

The G3w weft sensor can replace E2016, E2060, E2071 and E2070 weft sensors.

Air jet

Optical arrival sensor 59132 for Airjet machines
The Eltex optical weft break sensor is designed to detect the weft insertion arrival on Air Jet weaving machines. This sensor is of the reflecting type. It’s mounted in front of the reed and is moveable to coincide with any fabric width without cutting the reel.

Tension Monitor:
