Connectric IN-PROCESS Length, Speed Measurement & CUT Control System

The Connectric Length Measurement & Length Control System is a versatile in-process standalone system, feature filled, top quality yet economical.  It monitors and provides in process control for glue dispensation, automatic repeated cut to length of plastic extrusions, pull measurement applications, measurement of long lengths of plastic film, cut to length of metals, production monitoring on wood molding machines, cut to length of carpets, speed display of machines, quality control of production lengths, die cutting and rewinders, etc.  Click here for examples of the systems we have manufactured.

Our systems have been in continuous operation for more than 20 years.  It provides easy length measurement, automated repeated length cut control, speed display, batch control, production monitoring, communication for data gathering, etc.  Very high accuracy means that long lengths can be achieved with precision.  The 2 line display can show length and number of pieces processed.  Our customers are located in the US and Canada.  We also ship internationally.

The system can be easily added to older and newer machinery.  Optional features like buzzers, alarms, cut control outputs, batch control outputs, external inputs, timed operations, analogue output for drive control, RS232 or RS485 communications for data gathering and remote parameter settings makes it adaptable to multiple industries.  It can be used for plastics extrusion, plastic films, wood, metal, carpet, fabrics, paper, cardboard, or any sheet materials, or simply for machine speed display and control.  The system is programmable to show yards, feet, inches, meters, cm, rpm, etc. with a programmable decimal point position.  Due to its high accuracy, the system provides easy automation with quality control and reduced wastage.


The new dual display/counter can display speed and shift count simultaneously.  Using the appropriate software, the values can be polled remotely for data logging.


Our LARGE digit display / counters are viewable from long distances and can be used to display machine and conveyor speed.


The Connectric Length & Speed Measurement Systems are very economical and custom built for your specific requirements.  With our experience, we realize that each customer's needs and setup is different, we help identify exactly what you require, make recommendations and custom build it to meet your requirements.  It can also integrate with your existing encoders and wheels.




Some of the functions include:

  • Touch screen easy setting of the required length and batch quantity
  • Automated repeated length control - set the length and the system will send a signal to the cutter or the glue applicator , and reset itself ready for the next cut or application
  • Batch count and control - the 2 line display will increment on every cut.  Set the batch size if you wish, the system will provide an output when the batch size has been reached 
  • Optional solid state relay outputs to signal the cutter, glue applicator or batch quantity 
  • Manual cut control upon reset by a push button
  • Optional scaleable analogue output for drive control to slow and stop product movement during the cut cycle
  • Optional audible or alarm lights when the batch size has been reached 
  • Offset adjustment  - if there is a delay in the cut, the system can accommodate for this on every cut resulting in more accurate cuts, less wastage and reduced requirement for trimming to length
  • Blanking input to stop the count if no product is present (e.g. pull conveyers on extrusion machines)
  • Production shift or total length count regardless of line speed or stoppage time
  • Optional simultaneous speed and shift count (NEW FEATURE)
  • Etc.

Other features:

  • Easy and versatile mounting of the encoder -  our special spring bracket allows for above or below product mounting 
  • Can be used with any existing electronic encoders, we can scale the display accordingly 
  • Can be programmed in feet, inches,meters with programmable number of decimal points. 
  • Easy to program by the touch screen which can be locked out for programming if required 
  • Standard AC supply - no DC supplies required.  Encoder power provided by the controller 
  • Very accurate - our measuring wheels are ground to 0.05% accuracy
  • Scaleable and fine tunable to meet the most exacting requirements

Customers can order a complete system including the control box, encoder, encoder cable, accurate measuring wheel and spring loaded encoder bracket, or individual components. While the use of a spring loaded encoder bracket with various mounting arrangements is recommended (over and under table mounting as shown), the customer can design his own encoder mounting brackets provided the encoder is mounted appropriately.


Our systems are customized to your specific requirements.  Just fill our the application sheet and email it to us, we will be happy to quote.
