Connectric Length, Speed Measurement & CUT Length Control System

The Connectric Length Measurement & Length Control System is a versatile standalone system designed to provide easy and very accurate measurement and length cut control and production shift count of various materials like plastics, wood, paper, metal etc. The self contained system provides accurate measurement in meters, feet or inches.

Applications include single or repetitive cut to length, batch count, shift count regardless of machine line speed or stoppage time, repetitive glue application, accurate length measurement and control, etc. for the plastic extrusion, rubber and foam sealing, hoses and pipes, plastic film, bag and pouch manufacturing, wood molding, carpet and fabric, cardboard, paper and metal industries, etc.


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 is easily installable on older and newer machinery, and can also integrate with your existing encoders and wheels.




Some of the functions include:

  • Automated repeated cut to length control - set the length and the system will send a cut signal to the cutter, and reset itself ready for the next cut
  • 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 output to signal the cutter 
  • 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 
  • 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 and decimals of a foot, or inches and decimals of an inch or meters and decimals of a meter etc. 
  • Easy to program by the touch screen which can be locked out for programming if required 
  • Standard AC supply - no DC supplies required 
  • 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.
